Plant Facility

The Plant Facility at the IGC ensures the growth and maintenance of Arabidopsis thaliana plants, the model organism used by the plant research groups hosted by the Institute.

The facility consists of a custom-built greenhouse with lighting control and temperature regulation and three custom-made fully controlled growth chambers with short day, long day and continuous light settings, as well as a walk-in plant growth room and three small reach-in chambers that allow the performance of cell-based assays and more precise phenotypical analyses.
