Biomolecular Resource Facility

The Biomolecular Resource Facility (BRF) at John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR), Australian National University, have been supporting genomics researchers in Canberra and Australasia since 1988. The BRF offers consultation for experimental design, sequencing service provision, and bioinformatics analysis in fields including medicine, agriculture and the environment.

BRF’s expertise include epigenomics and RNA biology. They are associated with the multinational “Project Grandiose“, the mapping of detailed molecular processes involved in the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells. In the environmental field a Genotype by Sequencing pipeline is provided for phylogenomic studies.

Specific services include:

  • Next-generation sequencing – Multiple Illumina Platforms, Life Technologies Ion PGM
  • DNA sequencing and genotyping – Sanger sequencing
  • Bioinformatics
