The Laboratory utilizes a mixture of molecular diagnostic and classical techniques for detection and characterization of infectious microorganisms. Routine molecular techniques employing conventional PCR and a Real Time PCR method are applied for the rapid detection infectious pathogens.
The microbiome division is focused onunravelling the role of microbial community in human health using computational biology.
