Cell and molecular biology facility

This facility houses all the equipment available to associate professors and research coordinators at UniLaSalle regardless of their research discipline (plant, animal and human biology and/or physiology).  

Alongside its research programs (methodological development), the facility provides scientific and technical support to the various researchers for their Research & Development or training programs.


This integrated center mainly hosts multidisciplinary programs involving industrialists in the plant and livestock breeding and production, agro-industry, food, nutrition and health sectors.

Research areas
Animals and humans
  • Detection and quantification of bacteria in the digestive tract; food-induced alteration,
  • Measurement of the expression of transcription factors, proinflammatory tendencies and their molecular effectors; food-induced alteration,
  • Measurement of epigenetic characteristics (specific and non-specific methylation) in vitro and in vivo; food-induced alteration.
Plants and pathogenic fungi
  • Characterization of plant pathogenic fungi populations (biodiversity and pathogenic capacity),
  • Study of varietal resistance and tolerance,
  • Plant breeding aids (microsatellite molecular markers, etc.).
Key technical equipment
  • Automated extraction robot for genetic material (QIACUBE),
  • Automated sample preparation robot (QIAGILITY),
  • Two qPCR (real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction) systems (AB 7300 and ROTORGENE),
  • Sequencer (AB 3100),
  • Bioanalyzer (Lab-On-Chip 90).
