Facilities We develop our research with a range of facilities. This allows us to explore a broad range of research. We explore many topics, from nanotechnology to whole-cell function. Specialist facilities include: TIRF and SIM-TIRF microscopy systems for 4-D real-time fluorescence imaging with focal locking systems flow cytometry with cell sorting x-ray crystallography a microbiology containment level 3 suite Other equipment includes: high-performance liquid chromatography stop-flow UV-VIS fluorescence spectroscopy facilities for electron microscopy, DNA sequencing, microarray analyses and proteomics We have a suite of licenced controlled environment rooms. We use these for growing transgenic plants and for housing quarantine invertebrate pests.
