Our understanding of biofilms is rapidly unfolding with the advent of sophisticated technologies. SCELSE's state-of-the-art facilities feature:
• High Throughput Sequencing Unit using the two sequencing platforms illumina HiSeq and MiSeq. This is supported by a computer cluster with 2,200 core processors and liquid handling robotics;
• The SCELSE-Zeiss Advanced Biofilm Imaging Facility providing instrumentation tailored to meet the highly specialised and continually evolving needs of biofilm ELSE research;
• SCELSE has a strong in vivo experimentation platform to assess biofilm-based chronic infections and develop approaches for understanding and controlling such infections.
