The Molecular Biosciences Center (MBC) is a core research center located at Baylor University in Waco, Texas whose goal is to enable, enhance, expand, and encourage molecular bioscience research.
The center currently provides researchers with facilities for DNA sequencing, flow cytometry, real time- PCR, confocal and fluorescence microscopy, BSL-1 and BSL-2 cell culture, as well equipment and instrumentation for a variety of other techniques. Digital photo documentation stations are located within the center for obtaining high-quality fluorescence (including multifluorescence), phosphorimaging, chemiluminescence, and bioluminescence digital images. Various laboratory supplies, equipment, and bench space are available for carrying out common molecular techniques such as gel electrophoresis, immunoblotting, and ELISA; and (short-term) cold storage space is available at 2oC, -15oC, -80oC, and liquid nitrogen. In addition to assisting with the training of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty/staff on the instrumentation located in the center, the MBC also offers guidance in various molecular techniques , protocol development, and troubleshooting.
Thank you for your interest in the Molecular Biosciences Center. We appreciate any comments, questions, or suggestions.
