The Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Unit (CBBU) was set up to house academic groups, including that of the Director, Allen Rodrigo, whose research focuses on computational biology and cuts across the Divisions.

Controlled Environment Facility

The Controlled Environment Facility (CEF) is part of Plant Services, and houses 20 walk in growth rooms as well as 47 free standing growth chambers, two communal laboratories and two autoclaves.

Ecogenomics and Bioinformatics Lab (EBL)

The EBL is a joint initiative of ANU and CSIRO that seeks to support training, collaboration and cross-pollination.

Joint Mass Spectrometry Facility

The Joint Mass Spectrometry Facility (JMSF) is an important element of research infrastructure. 

Plant Services

RSB Plant Services consist of the Research and Teaching Greenhouses, the Controlled Environment Facility (CEF), and additional facilities in Linnaeus Building and the back compound of the R.N. Robertson Building.

Research tools

The School supports a wide range of equipment for research.

RSB Purchasing and Store

The RSB Store stocks a broad range of products for research, teaching and office needs, for RSB and across ANU.

Stable Isotope Laboratory

The Stable Isotope Laboratory is is run as part of the Farquhar Laboratory, but provides services to ANU and external researchers. The Lab analyses a wide range of light isotope ratios, primarily in organic materials.
