To optimise and expand our range of services and to increase our knowledge in collaboration with other companies and academic institutes, BaseClear has a dedicated research and development department. This R&D department gives us the freedom to address client-specific questions in a set-up that is completely independent from our standard production procedures.

BaseClear participates as SME in several R&D projects and proposal, including Horizon2020, TKI (Top consortia for Knowledge and Innovation), STW and ZonMw projects. In 2017 our research projects are defined in 5 specific theme’s:

  • Microbial (meta)genomics
  • eDNA (environmental DNA)
  • Wildlife forensics & customs issues
  • Plant genomics
  • Synthetic biology

We work together with some of the leading institutes on these theme’s, our partners include for instance NIZO food research, KWR Watercycle Research Institute, RIKILT - Wageningen UR, Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW), Genostar and CAD4BIO. 

In our R&D department we have several Ph.D level scientists specialised on different topics. Due to the unique combination of specialists in bioinformatics, metagenomics and synthetic biology BaseClear is a valued partner in many projects involving genomic research. Our R&D department is one of the steps of our long-term strategy to make BaseClear not only a service provider but a true solution provider.
