The Genetics, Genomics & Bioinformatics Department (GBBD) at NABDA is unique, encompassing all facets of modern genetics and bioinformatics research. Trans-disciplinary research being conducted in our laboratories would lead to cures for human diseases; improvements to crop and livestock quality and yield; creation of new technologies with applications to medicine; agriculture; environment; and industry.
Our capacity building activities covers both general and specialized topics in translational genetics, and is designed to better acquaint scientists and clinicians with the tools and technologies of genetics and genomics.
OUR RESEARCH ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
ONGOING PROJECT INCLUDES:
Molecular Biotechnology Center (wet labs: hands-on scientific experimentation and manipulation of genetic materials)
Bioinformatics centre (dry lab: in silico analysis of biological data)
The Genetics, Genomics andBioinformatics department is currently looking into the Nigerian resources (human, livestock, plant and microbes), utilizing new knowledge and technologies to unravel who and what are in Nigeria to contribute to both national development and international relevance.
