What’s in a name? Updates to OPAL at GIFS

The Global Institute for Food Security has changed its technology platform name from Omics and Precision Agriculture Laboratory to Omics and Precision Analytics Laboratory. This update to our name is an accurate reflection of the breadth of genomics, transcriptomics and bioinformatics services we offer, and the value that we are pleased to bring to the ecosystem and our customers.

As GIFS continues to grow its programs and technology platforms and prepare its Engineering Biology suites to come online, we look forward to providing even more competitive value through our high-throughput proteomics and metabolomics services. This will be in addition to the DNA and RNA sequencing services we offer in our state-of-the-art facilities at GIFS.

While our roots are in agriculture, GIFS is proud to work with researchers and organizations throughout the innovation ecosystem to advance science and technology, providing insights and solutions to complex challenges.
