Our facilities

212 Votey

The lab is located at room 212 in Votey Hall. The lab includes equipment and supplies for growing microbial communities with multiple bioreactor configurations. The lab also includes all of the equipment needed to extract and purify DNA, RNA, and proteins which we use for metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and metaproteomics, respectively.

Sequencing facilities

Nucelotide sequencing will be performed with the Vermont Genetics Network or at the UVM College of Medicine. The Vermont Genetics Network also performs proteomics.

Computational resources

The Vermont Advanced Computing Core houses the computational resources that we use for analyzing sequencing data, including workflows for 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing analyses, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and phylogenetic analyses.
