Molecular Biology is the youngest section of Laimburg Research Centre. Its laboratory uses innovative DNA-, RNA- and protein-based techniques such as PCR, RT-PCR, qualitative and quantitative real-time PCR, DNA sequencing, analyses of various DNA-fragments and microarrays as well as 2D gel electrophoresis to find answers to a whole host of issues raised in the context of South Tyrolean agriculture.
The Molecular Biology section is organised in the following divisions:
