Infrastructure and Platforms

The department has a first-class infrastructure with repsect to intrumentation, premises for reaserach, education, and different types of support functions. A substantial part of the instruments are listed in the fully searchable database InstrumentKeeper where information on the instruments their applications and contact persons are provided.

A large fraction of the instruments are organized in platforms and core facilities that in some cases are nodes national and international infrastructures. These offer access to instruments and service and education to a varying degree.

Computational Life Science Cluster (CLiC)

CliC consists of a large number of scientists at several departments at Umeå University and is a node in the national infrastructure Bioinformatics Infrastructure for Life Sciences (BILS). CLiC provides courses and support in bioinformatics, genomics, and metabolomics.
