Teagasc have all the laboratory infrastructure required to take on a project of this scale. Each of the 5 Teagasc centers involved in U-PROTEIN have dedicated specialist laboratories e.g. Herbage analysis laboratory, at Teagasc Oak Park, Grassland Research laboratory at Teagasc Moorepark essential for Task 2; Protein Chemistry Laboratory, Powder Properties Laboratory Rheological Characterisation Laboratory, Process laboratory, at Teagasc Moorepark, essential for Task 3; NextGen Sequencing Facility, Bioactive Protein Discovery Unit, Biosafety Level 2 lab facility available to Task 4. Laboratory Infrastructure of relevance to Task 5 at Moorepark includes; State of the art Protein and Digestion Laboratories (food colloids, digestion, and encapsulation), Tissue Culture Laboratory. At Teagasc Ashtown Infrastructure of relevance to Task 6 includes both Meat Technology Ireland (MTI) and the Prepared Consumer Foods Centre (PCFC), which include ten multidisciplinary meat research focused laboratories, the Food Pilot Processing plant as well as the Meat Industry Development Unit (MIDU) which is the only research abattoir in Ireland and the newly refurbished Sensory Suite.
