A biomedical imaging research centre that supports a wide range of biomedical, engineering and scientific research.
A Core facility of the Melbourne Brain Centre at Parkville . We provide access optical microscopy including bright field and fluorescence microscope, live cell microscopy (both wide-field and confocal), TIRF and confocal microscopy. As well as specialised stereology and neuron tracing work stations.
The facility also has state of the art facilities for image analysis, deconvolution and 3D rendering and animation (including Amira, Huygens and Metamorph Software).
This shared resource – incorporating the AAHL Biosecurity Microscopy Facility (ABMF) – provides world-class infrastructure and related technology platforms for researchers conducting projects requiring a high biocontainment/biosecure environment.
‘e-Research’ is the use of cutting-edge information and communication technology (ICT) to facilitate and enable global collaborative research, smaller niche research and research requiring advanced computing. MeRC harnesses the skills and resources of the IT Services Division, the Library and computer scientists in the Faculty of Information Technology to provide [...]
The Molecular Genomics Core Facility encompasses both the Microarray Core facility and the Next Generation DNA Sequencing Core Facility. For both facilities, services to external researchers are offered when spare capacity allows. Microarray We offer both full and partial services to researchers who wish to use Affymetrix Gene Expression arrays [...]
Computational platform: An SGI Altix shared-memory 3700 Bx2 system with 64 1.5GHz Itanium II processors. Each processor has 4GB of local memory. However, all processors can share all of the memory (256GB). A single Linux image manages all of the processors. Data storage consists of 4.8TB of disk and 57TB [...]
A member of the RNAi Global Initiative, the Functional Genomics Group at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is open to the Australian medical research community for the purpose of providing access to both small interfering (siRNA) and lentiviral-based short hairpin RNAi (shRNAmir) gene knockdown screens for functional genomics studies.
The CSIRO Collaborative Crystallisation Centre (C3) is a full service protein crystallisation centre specialising in both screening and optimisation. C3 provides both expert and novice users access to technologies which will enable the rapid and efficient sampling of crystallisation space. Our core competency is high-throughput small volume (sub-microlitre) dispensing coupled with automatic imaging, but our strength lies in our ease of use, range of services and expert advice.
