The entire field of genomics research is centred on the application of innovative high throughput technologies dedicated to the analysis of plant materials at different molecular levels. CBSG is dedicated not only to applying the latest technologies but also, to developing these and alternative technologies with the aim of efficient data generation and mining.
Building on existing infrastructure, CBSG has established state-of-the-art functional genomics technology platforms designed to meet the needs of the individual projects. These platforms cover transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics. In addition, CBSG is active in full genome sequencing activities for both potato and tomato and actively develops bioinformatics tools for data mining and genome annotation.
