National Omics Center (NOC) focuses on addressing biological questions through advanced genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics technologies.
- Genomic Research.
The focus is in the area of structural, evolutionary and functional genomics of microbes, plants, and animals. Research on microbial genomes includes Spirulina, insect-fungi, yeasts, metagenome sequencing and detection of variation in viral genomes. We also employ genomic technologies, such as RNA-sequencing, genotyping by sequencing, targeted enrichment sequencing, construction of BAC/fosmid libraries, to study complex eukaryotic organisms such as oil palm (Elaeis spp.), rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis), cassava (Manihot esculenta), mungbean (Vigna radiata), maize, eucalyptus and black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon).
- Proteomics Research.
The focus is on various fields of High-throughput proteomics technology, including 2D-PAGE, shotgun proteomics or GeLC-MS, MALDI-TOF protein profile, MALDI-biotyper, protein-protein interaction, phosphoproteomics, and glycoproteomics. Examples of studies include proteins related to ovarian development in the black tiger shrimp, cancer biomarker discovery and high-throughput detection of bioactive peptides.
