Research Environment


The institute is housed at a new facility in the Gruberstrasse, Linz offering generous office space and state-of-the art facilities and infrastructure. The laboratory and office space of the Genetics of Single Molecules group includes a microscopy area, an electrophoresis room, two clean rooms each equipped with laminar flow hoods for tissue culture or bacterial work, and two main laboratories for general molecular biology work with incubators, real-time and regular thermocyclers, centrifuges, etc. The necessary infrastructure and technological advances were developed to use bead-emulsion amplification (BEA) protocols for several different scientific projects. Microscopy, data storage and management, as well as mathematical algorithms have been managed to optimally work in synchrony for the best performance of BEA technology. Finally, given the strength of the Institute in microscopy and microfluidics there is a continuous synergy and know-how to improve on the current protocols.

As for the scientific environment, the Institute is led by Prof. Peter Pohl and is comprised of four active senior academic staff, 25 postdoctoral researchers, and 38 doctoral students. Since its beginning, the Institute has been very successful in pursuing interdisciplinary research in areas allied to membrane transport, single molecule signalling, single fluorescent dye tracing, confocal fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and microfluidics. The Institute has been particularly successful in getting funding from national (Austrian Science Fund—FWF) and international agencies (EU) which is reflected by the growing number of scientist at the Institute. The Institute is considered an important training center in Biophysics and has an international reputation that attracts scientists from all over the world.
