The Institute has excellent facilities for lab-, field-and farm-based research, including aquaria, aviaries and laboratories for conducting analyses in bioinformatics, cellular physiology, developmental biology, evolutionary biology, endocrinology, molecular ecology and physiological ecology. We also benefit from a state of the art field research centre on Loch Lomond, as well as a University farm and research centre North of Glasgow. Additional specialist facilities are available through our collaborations with other institutes within the College.
We have developed a suite of research study systems based at our campus and field-based facilities that can be used to address a number of fundamental & applied research questions.
Details about some of these systems are available in this section, with additional systems to come. We encourage anyone interested in these systems to get in touch via the contacts given.
