Five main research facilities will be initially set up:
It will provide significant data storage and computing power required to manage, store and analyse huge amounts of heterogeneous data generated and used by its researchers.
It will develop and implement essential omics technologies for life science research. Its large scale DNA/RNA sequencing infrastructure will be able to provide high-throughput next generation sequencing.
Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility
It will provide a platform for high resolution molecular structure determination across the entire workflow of structural biology imaging.
Light Microscopy Imaging Facility
It will respond to the diversified demand of today’s biomedical scientists by providing access and expertise in a broad array of light microscopy techniques and applications.
Image Analysis Facility
It will further support scientists managing imaging-intese projects by providing access to innovative software solutions and expertise in visualisation, management and quantitative analysis of bio image (big) data.
