The research groups and researchers at the Department of Biology and Biological Engineering are part of several nationally and international founded centers and infrastructures. The department further functions as a bridge between some of these centres and infrastructures.
The Formulaex centre is an industrial research centre for functional RNA delivery. The aim is to contribute fundamental knowledge required for the design of safe and efficient nanoscale drug-delivery vehicles for next generation nucleotide drugs.
- Wallenberg Wood Science Center, WWS
Wallenberg Wood Science Center is a research center with a focus on new materials from trees. The mission is to create knowledge and build competence that can form the basis for an innovative future value creation from forest raw material.
Chalmers Mass Spectrometry Infrastructure, CMSI
The CMSI is a Chalmers infrastructure that provides access to both mass spectrometry instrumentation and service analyses to researchers at Chalmers and beyond. Currently many different types of small molecules can be analysed in biological samples at the CMSI, and the range of analyses is expanding. The CMSI also performs metabolomics analysis and is a node of the Swedish Metabolomics Centre in Umeå.
Computational Systems Biology Infrastructure, CSBI
CSBI is a national research support infrastructure with two main aims; To establishment of a computational framework for management and usage of genome-scale metabolic models (GEMs), and providing expert support in computational biology and bioinformatics for nationally prioritised research projects.
