Research Infrastructure


Since 2009, the users of the GeoGenetics cleanlab, now at the GLOBE Institute, have delivered ground-breaking research within genomics, proteomics, diseases, ecology and evolution: many highly inter-disciplinary. The central work horse equipment are standard lamina air-flow LAF hoods. Our current clean lab LAFs have run nearly daily for a decade. The extensive use have taken its toll on the 4 LAFs. After tens of thousands of operation hours, the current 4 LAF hoods are simply close to used up. The proposed investment aims at ensuring the continued function of a dedicated clean lab facility for ancient biomolecules, by renewing the 4 laminar air flow hoods, which will support cutting-edge scientific progress for numerous projects, and larger research programmes in the years to come.
