Quantitative and functional ecology platform

The quantitative and functional ecology platform was created in 2006 at the TBI Laboratory - Toulouse Biotechnology Institute. The objective of this platform is, among other things, to capitalize and adapt know-how. The platform is there to advise and support the choice and implementation of methodologies for the study of complex ecosystems. The general mission of the quantitative and functional ecology platform is to develop and implement analytical techniques in order to characterize the composition, organization and activity of simple binary models of complex ecosystems and to understand the interaction phenomena that take place there.

This platform provides internal and external projects for both the public and private sectors.

Competences & Services

The platform advises and supports the implementation of methodologies for the study of complex ecosystems

Identification, localization and quantification of microorganisms (species or functional FISH, auto-fluorescent strains, microscopic observation or flow cytometry), gene expression: PCR, qPCR, RTqPCR, DNA/RNA extraction (for PCR or sequencing), development of new techniques.

Service offer

R&D, collaborations, provision of equipment, services.

These offers are open internally but also externally for public research laboratories or private companies. An interview with the person in charge of the platform allows to define the outlines of the service: type of project (R&D, collaborations, provision of equipment, services) and experimental strategy.

Certification

The platform is certified ISO 9001:2015 since June 2016.
