The BeeHIVE cluster benefits from access to four state-of-the-art research facilities. Together these facilities provide the essential technology, tools, and support to successfully carry out the research mission of the cluster.
The world-class Pacific Centre for Isotopic and Geochemical Research (EOAS, UBC), houses 15 state-of-the-art instruments (13 mass spectrometers and 2 laser ablation systems) that allow high-precision elemental and isotopic analysis of soil, air, honey, and other bee products.
The UBC node of the Pan-Canadian Proteomics Centre (MSL, UBC) offers a broad range of services, from mass confirmations to large-scale quantitative proteomic screens, along with all the associated bioinformatics.
The National Bee Diagnostic Centre (AAFC Research Farm, Beaverlodge, AB) is a custom-built molecular diagnostic facility for the detection of honey bee diseases, pests and parasites.
As Canada's particle accelerator centre, TRIUMF provides research infrastructure and tools that are too large and complex for a single university to build, operate, or maintain; the current multidisciplinary science program includes particle physics, molecular and materials science, and nuclear medicine.
