Important Notices

DNA Sequencing, august 2022: Please be advised that we will no longer accept research proposals submitted for the use of the Illumina Hiseq 2500 sequencer in the DNA Sequencing open-access facility. The equipment will be phased out in August 2022 and will soon be replaced by the Illumina NextSeq 2000 Sequencer.

Macromolecules, august 2022: This facility is undergoing unscheduled corrective maintenance of current equipment and refurbishment to introduce new technology. No further proposals will be received in 2022.

LNBR benefits society in a direct way, by leveraging investment made in its research facilities. Access to LNBR advanced instrumentation can enhance scientific and technological developments carried out by external users from academia and industry. Each facility has its own schedule for project submission and execution.
