Biotechnology Laboratory

The LSU AgCenter Biotechnology Laboratory (ABL) is a core facility that provides basic and applied research expertise to support researchers in the LSU system as well as those in other academic institutions and industry.

The ABL was formed in 1998 to provide support to faculty in performing biomolecular research. In 2010, the ABL was merged with the Protein Facility in LSU’s College of Basic Sciences. Today, the ABL consists of three units: the Protein Facility, the Plant Transformation Facility and the Animal Cell Culture Facility. The ABL can provide a wide range of services to investigators, often at a fraction of the price of commercial companies.
