The field of proteomics has rapidly grown in the past few years thanks to the complete sequencing of a larger number of genomes together with the technological development of mass spectometry and new biocomputing tools that make it possible to analyse a large amount of complex data in very little time.
The complete sequence of the human genome, in addition to revealing how many genes we have, has helped us understand the molecular causes of many disorders and discover the importance of our genetic differences for the development of said disorders.
It offers resources to research the function of genes and protein expression. The field of genomics is particularly interesting for the application of new analysis methods in RNA expression, DNA variability and gene function characterization. This unit offers the technological knowledge and the tools needed for all stages of the genomic and proteomic analysis: from the preparation of the sample to the analysis and delivery of the results to the researchers.
