Facilities / Resources
Centre researchers have access to truly unique lab facilities as a result of their diverse competencies and CGB partnerships with the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and Departments of Earth Science and Biology at UiB.

CGB scientists also have access to sea-going vessels taking them to field sites or natural marine laboratories.
R/V G.O. Sars is equipped with state-of-the-art technology in order to carry out a wide variety of research work. Examples of the kind of research work the vessel is capable of carrying out include: pelagic and bottom trawling, plankton sampling, CTD/rosette operations, towed body operations, hydrographic operations, water sampling, miscellaneous kinds of environmental sampling, grabbing and coring, hydro-acoustic research work, seismic operations.
Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) this type of unmanned submersible makes it possible for researchers to virtually visit the sea-floor.
Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) are also used to explore the seafloor around the deep-sea volcanoes located there, looking for hot vents and new ecosystems
Created by CGB scientists, CREST (Classification Resources for Environmental Sequence Tags) is a collection of resources for taxonomical classification of high throughput sequencing. CREST utilises a curated taxonomy derived from taxonomic annotation of a global alignment of phylogenetic marker genes.
