In addition to instrumentation housed in Hand Lab, the Department of Chemistry has access to equipment and facilities shared throughout the MSU community. Some of the centers housing this equipment are listed below.
Institute for Genomics, Biocomputing, and Biotechnology (IGBB)
The Institute for Genomics, Biocomputing, & Biotechnology (IGBB) at Mississippi State University (MS State) was founded to increase the ability of Mississippi scientists to lead high-throughput, multi-disciplinary projects focused on understanding the biomolecular interactions underlying the diversity, value, and sustainability of species of agricultural, medical, bioenergy, and/or ecological importance. The IGBB provides researchers access to a team of highly-skilled professionals trained in cutting edge genomics, proteomics, and high performance computing principles and techniques. The IGBB team not only generates molecular data using state-of-the-art equipment, but works with investigators to efficiently derive biological knowledge from that data.
More details are available on the IGBB Website.
Institute for Imaging and Analytical Technologies (I2AT)
he Institute for Imaging & Analytical Technologies (I²AT) is a university-wide research institute and core facility which meets MSU's missions in research, teaching, and service by facilitating inter- and multi-disciplinary research, education, and outreach in the life and materials sciences. I²AT houses major research instrumentation that is available to faculty, staff, students, and outside users. Instrumentation includes technologies for diverse microscopy (light, confocal, atomic force, and electron) and microanalysis (e.g. X-ray diffraction) applications, in addition to magnetic resonance imaging used in areas of veterinary medicine, cognitive science and medical systems. These technologies provide MSU, the State of Mississippi and the local community with state-of-the-art resources that facilitate scholarly research, spawn competitive funding, foster project completion, enable high-quality undergraduate and graduate education, enhance impact of outreach, and promote economic development. I²AT as a university-level research institute, is organized with university-wide responsibilities, and is administered out of MSU's Office of Research and Economic Development.
More details are available on the I2AT Website.
High Performance Computing Center (HPC2)
The High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC²), an evolution of the MSU NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Computational Field Simulation, at Mississippi State University is a coalition of member institutes and centers that share a common core objective of advancing the state-of-the-art in computational science and engineering using high performance computing; a common approach to research that embraces a multi-disciplinary, team-oriented concept; and a commitment to a full partnership between education, research, and service. The mission of the HPC² is to serve the University, State, and Nation through excellence in computational science and engineering.
