The Faculty of Science has access to research infrastructures of high international standard. The Marine Infrastructure at the University of Gothenburg organizes the university's research vessels and the Swedish NMR Centre is one of the world’s best equipped NMR facilities.
Large-Scale Cell-Based Screening
The Center for Large-scale cell-based screening provides access to various high throughput methodologies for genome-wide screens. This unit is of importance for a wide array of applications in cell and molecular biology, microbial evolution, drug/antibiotics screening and biotechnology.
The infrastructure consists of robots and automated phenotyping devices that are used in genome-wide approaches in many fields of bioscience.
At the Swedish NMR Centre life's smallest components are studied using high-tech spectrometers. The centre is the local hub of half a dozen independent research groups in Gothenburg, focusing on different aspects of structural biology. Part of Swedstruct and of SciLifeLab’s technical platforms Structural Biology and Metabolomics
Chemical imaging is a university research infrastructure between University of Gothenburg and Chalmers. The infrastructure offers a wide range of tools for analytical questions within materials science, geoscience and life science. The Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biologist hosts the chemical imaging infrastructure.
In 2014, the University of Gothenburg and Mariestad Municipality joined forces to establish the University Park in Mariestad, a town 180 km north-east of Gothenburg. The park offers gardens, a greenhouse, a garden centre, a forge, a lime furnace and carpentry and masonry shops. The park is open to anyone that wants to visit it, at the same time as students and researchers engaged in activities in parts of the park.
