University of North Carolina-Charlotte

Bioinformatics Research Building

The new 4-story interdisciplinary center on the Charlotte Research Institute Campus of UNC-Charlotte houses the Bioinformatics Research Center’s departments of Statistical Genetics, Systems Biology, Computational Chemistry, and a research vivarium. The LEED Silver certified building offers space for both wet and dry laboratories (over 50%), and includes core facilities for gene expression, proteomics, microscopy, crystallography, and computer-based clinical research programs.

Systems Biology (study of the internal and external factors that impact gene regulation and interaction) – spaces include wet labs (molecular biology), micro array fabrication, micro array lab, microscopy/imaging, autoclave, shared instrument room, freezer/refrigeration room, and cold room, as well as computer labs and offices.

Statistical Genetics (mainly computation work to study the relation of genetic make-up to disease; search databases and data from assessments of genetic variability in patient populations to associate phenotype with pathology) – spaces include computational lab and offices.

Computational Chemistry (computer modeling of chemical structures and activities) – spaces include proteomic lab, instrument lab, freezer/refrigeration room, as well as seminar room (virtual reality), computational lab, and offices.
