The TEAM Molecular and BioInnovation Lab (MPBIL) located in 2240 Academic Surge provides a space for students, faculty and community members alike to work with biology. The laboratory is the go-to facility at UC Davis for undergraduates interested in pursing independent research projects, entrepreneurial endeavors, and take innovative research based classes themed in biology, engineering, art and design.
A comprehensive list of MPBIL equipment can be found here.
|Microbial and Mammalian Cell Line Prototyping and Propagation – TEAM can help you design, build and test DNA-encoded devices in BSL-1 organisms. We can develop an assembly strategy to most efficiently construct your DNA-encoded constructs. Then we can help plan out the appropriate experiments to test your newly built DNA constructs. Or we can do the building and testing for you.|
|Protein Expression and Preparative Purification – TEAM can perform protein expression and preparative purifications up to 10L. We can work with you to appropriately plan and express a wide variety of proteins in a wide range of bacterial and mammalian hosts. To find out more, please follow the protein expression link.|
|Instructional Activities/Special Events – The MPBIL space can be used by any group or individual from campus to develop new hands-on courses or other special activities involving molecular or living things. Follow the link for examples of the types of activities we can host and more information.|
Don’t see something you might need? Feel free to ask! We’ll work with you to see if we can make it happen.
