About Us

The Genetic Data Centre (since 1998) and the BioSAFE (since 2010) service labs have joined our capacities to advise biologists on the advantages, precision and costs of applying molecular tools in genetics and genomics.  We can provide space, equipment and know-how for small to large scale genetic research projects.
