The Laboratory of Biomolecular Technologies is a structural unit of the Institute which was created in 2016 within the Department of New Technologies.
Key Focus Areas of the Laboratory:
- the study of the characteristics of the "epidemic genotype" of infectious agents;
- the study of markers of the course and prognosis of infectious diseases;
- the study of the differential expression of pathogenicity factors and persistence of microorganisms in infectious diseases;
- the study of the peculiarities in the interaction of infectious agent and macroorganism at the level of the factors of the innate immunity.
- the manufacture and development of Diagnostic Test Systems for the detection and typing of infectious agents in humans and animals using real-time PCR and PCR methods;
- the use of molecular biology methods to cover the diversity of biotechnological research of the Department of New Technologies;
- the adaptation of various methods of molecular biology in order to widen the possibilities of diagnosing infections;
- the creation of screening and typing systems using biomolecular methods upon request.
- the integration of students, doctoral and Master students into research within the Laboratory;
- courses and training sessions for specialists from other laboratories of the Institute seeking to update and acquire working methods with real-time PCR.
