The BioCode: RNA to proteins (R2P) Core Facility analyzes gene expression from mRNA to proteins

  • We are working with different organisms and tissue cultures: bacteria, pathogens, yeast, mammalian cells and tissues...

  • We provide consulting, assistance and technical advice to help researcher in experiments design.

  • Our Facility is dedicated to local academic users (University of Geneva) but is also open for external academic researchers and for industry.

  • We are in close contact with the Bioinformatics and Genomics Core Facilities of UNIGE.




The main activities of BioCode: RNA to protein (R2P):

  • Ribosome isolation and fractionation

  • Libraries preparation for translatome analysis by Ribo-Seq (ribosome profiling)

  • Analyses of translation efficiency, RNA translatability, ribosome pausing

  • Isolation of soluble and aggregated proteins

  • Analysis of newly synthesized proteins

  • In vitro translation
