The Facility consists of four nodes:
NBAF-Sheffield specialises in molecular genetics, providing generation and analyses of molecular markers for population and evolutionary genetics
NBAF-Liverpool specialises in high-throughput sequencing and gene expression analysis, providing technologies used for gene expression analysis, metagenomics, sequence capture, next-generation sequencing using Illumina and Pacific Biosiences technology, and bioinformatic support for analyses of these data
NBAF-Edinburgh specialises in high-throughput sequencing and genomic analysis, using Sanger, Illumina and PacBio technology, and bioinformatic support for analyses of these data
NBAF-Birmingham specialises in metabolomics and provides training, and high resolution MS and NMR based analyses
Please note that to access NBAF-Liverpool or NBAF Edinburgh, you will need to have secured funding first. This can be through a NERC grant, NERC small grant, or through our annual pilot “Pilot project competition” scheme.
