CONCORDIA GENOME FOUNDRY

Canada's Technology Platform for Synthetic Biology

Infrastructure


The Genome Foundry is a pioneering facility that employs cutting edge robotic instrumentation which enables synthetic biologists to execute work at significant scales and speeds. It eliminates bottlenecks in the the research cycle and creates greater capacity for designing experiments and imagining possibilities.

Foundry projects target high value applications in human health, agriculture, chemicals, and environmental technologies, and provide a broad range of unique training opportunities for high quality professionals in this field.

Facility

Our highly automated research platform supports the synthetic biology design-build-test-learn development cycle. DNA assembly techniques include Golden Gate assembly (MoClo YTK), CRISPR/Cas9, and yeast recombination. Also available is RNA-Seq library preparation for Next Generation Sequencing.

 

Find out more about what kinds of discoveries are being made at our Genome Foundry from our research centre members Vincent Martin, Malcolm Whiteway, and Aashiq Kachroo.
