Research Infrastructures at KBC

Activities and support of the research infrastructures at KBC are coordinated by the KBC Board, the "KBC group". The core facilities and technical platforms provide research projects at Umeå University and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU, Umeå) with state of the art methods and equipment. The infrastructures give regularly courses for both PhD students and postdocs.

More information is found about each core facility / research infrastructure in its own webpage.
