Core Facilities

The Wine Research Centre has modern and fully equipped molecular biology laboratories and a mass spectrometry laboratory. In addition, the Microarray Facility in the Centre serves as a core DNA Array Facility for scientists on the UBC campus. Researchers in the Wine Research Centre also have full access to the outstanding research facilities in the Michael Smith Laboratories (MSL) which is conveniently located adjacent to the Centre. The MSL has established itself as a force in the global biotechnology research community. Its outstanding research facilities, including the Nucleic Acids and Protein Synthesis (NAPS) unit, the Protein Production Pilot Plant, the Functional Genomics Core Facility and the Centre for Biological Calorimetry, provide a strong foundation for cutting edge research in functional genomics. In addition, the eight hubs of the CFI-funded Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics provide state-of-the-art equipment for characterizing gene products. Large-scale sequencing projects at the Wine Research Centre are done in collaboration with scientists in Canada’s Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre. Quantitative proteomics projects at the Centre are done in collaboration with the University of Victoria – Genome BC Proteomics Centre.
