The Bio-Protection Research Centre is a Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE), that pursues multidisciplinary research to meet the biosecurity and pest management needs of New Zealand's plant-based primary industries and natural ecosystems.
It was formed by New Zealand's leading plant protection scientists.
Current research programmes span a range of applications including computational intelligence, molecular biology, biotechnology and agro-ecology.
Based at Lincoln, many of the Centre's staff and postgraduate students are situated within the greater Lincoln campus - including the University and surrounding Crown Research Institutes.
Bio-Protection's well resourced laboratories are complemented by excellent field facilities and the NZ Biotron, one of only three plant growth facilities of its kind in the world.
The Centre also runs the Lincoln University Sequencing Facility, located on sixth floor of the Burns Building. We operate an Applied Biosystems 3130xl Genetic Analyser, with a 50cm array and POP7 installed as the standard platform. We offer Full Sequencing, Capillary Separation and Genotyping services five days each week with results available 24 - 48 hours after receipt of samples.
