Duties and Responsibilities

  • Consultation
    We provide you current possibilities and ways of utilisation of molecular biological methods.
  • Service
  • DNA preperation from different plant and animal basic materials
  • Measurement of DNA concentration
  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • Several gel electrophoreses with digital analysis
  • Identification of genetic variations with:
    • Random Amplified Polymorphism (RAP)-Analysis
    • Mikrosatellite analysis
    • Restriktionsverdau (RFLP)
    • Pyrosequencing-analysis
  • Sequencing of interest chromosomes regions
    also possible are further technologies (Expressionsanalysis, DNA-cloning).
  • Provision of laboratory technology
    for the own processing of research projects.


Education and qualification

We offer a range of exiting courses and opportunities for students to approbiate theoretical and practical knowledge about basic molecular methods.

Also researchers of the faculty have the posibility to learn molecular working techniques. In the first intention this is for junior scientists, who aspire a further qualification in the field of molecular biology at national and international institutions.

We provide courses for pupils several times at year.


Public relation

The "Molekularbiologische Zentrum" is actively involved in expositions and events presenting the research results and information about duties and responsibilities of the centre.

Guest of the faculty, we offer a visitation of the lab and introduction to our work.

Within the scope of public relations, we provide information events for pupils and other institutions.
