Edinburgh Genome Foundry: DNA Design and Assembly

The Edinburgh Genome Foundry (EGF) is a national facility based at the University of Edinburgh that specialises in the assembly of genetic constructs for academic and industrial customers to equip cells with new or improved functions. 

They deliver high-throughput projects involving long constructs (>5kbp), constructs comprising large numbers of genetic parts, or combinatorial libraries. Our platform is agnostic on the host chassis; to date we have assembled constructs for use in bacteria, yeast, algae and mammalian cells.

Edinomics: Cell Analysis

Edinomics is a specialist facility based at the University of Edinburgh that provides proteomics and metabolomics services for qualitative and quantitative analysis. It applies analytical approaches on biological samples to probe cellular components (proteins or metabolites) to help researchers better understanding the underlying mechanisms that lead to biologically observed phenotypes.
