By using existing and emerging technologies and working to develop and validate new ones, we can address problems raised by the industries and communities that we work with.
Our research techniques allow for the rapid identification of organisms from small samples of biological or environmental material, which can be used to characterise biological communities, reconstruct food webs, describe the physiology of animals and understand how genes function in given ecological situations. These projects can lead to well-developed decision making, stronger protection of our environment, improved health of plants and animals, as well as more efficient farming techniques and better human health.
Our interdisciplinary team are already engaged in research using molecular tools applied to a range of real-world problems, and can leverage this capability to deliver cost-effective commercial and collaborative research programmes. You can read about our research projects and collaborative work in our Advance Magazine.
We are keen to engage and discuss your research needs with you, and investigate opportunities for us to provide you with appropriate bespoke contract research solutions or to collaborate on larger projects.
