The Greenwood Molecular Biology Facility is a primary research infrastructure operated by the Biotechnology Program of the Pacific Biosciences Research Center. The Facility is vital to the educational and research mission of the University of Hawai'i by serving the biomedical and molecular biology research and educational programs of the University and its associated institutions.
The activities of the the Facility are structured to address both the present and the future needs of researchers for services in genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. These currently include the following:
- DNA Sequencing
- GeneScan / Genotyping
- Real-Time PCR Analysis
- Oligonucleotide Synthesis and Purification
- GeneChip / DNA Microarray Analysis
- Custom Microarray Analysis
- Peptide and Protein Sequencing
- GCG Genetic Analysis and Database Access
- Molecular Modeling
The services lower the overall cost of research and improve the quality of research work by offering world-class instrumentation and techniques of modern biology.
The Core Facility provides technical support for the research and educational activities of over 400 individuals. It also discusses collaborative research projects with University researchers. You are welcome to come by and see our resources, or discuss your ideas and interests with the Facility's staff and faculty members.
