Biobanks

IMGGE Biobank represent a collection of tissue samples, collected from the patients with various diseases, with emphasis on rare diseases.

Biobanks, as a resource, can support a diverse range of biomedical research intended to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness.

Plant Growth Unit

Planth growth unit has a plant in vitro culture room, suitable for micro propagation of plants and transformation experiments. It is equipped with an air flow cabinet, necessary for sterile work, and a hydroponic plant culture, suitable for experiments on mineral nutrition of plants. The Unit is also equipped with The Growth Chamber, with controlled light, temperature and humidity conditions.

For plant transformation the Agrobacterium tumefaciens method is used, while the „Floral deep“method is used for Arabidopsis transformation. This method is simple and efficient and there is no need for plant culture, so transformed seed can be obtained much faster compared with clasic A. tumefaciens method.

 Tobacco cell line BY2 is used in transient transformation experiments and functional analyses of gene promoter activity.
