NGI – National Genomics Infrastructure
National infrastructure for large-scale DNA sequencing and SNP genotyping.
The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) has been funded as a national infrastructure at Uppsala University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska institutet since January 2010. The operation aims to give Swedish researchers access to the latest technology for large-scale DNA sequencing and SNP genotyping. Large-scale analyses of DNA and RNA sequences play a central role in biomedical research. Access to a broad range of different sequencing technologies makes it possible to select the combination that is best suited to a specific project.
Today, NGI is one the three largest genomics centres in Europe, and via its location at SciLifeLab in Stockholm and Uppsala, it can co-use equipment and competence. NGI also collaborates with other initiatives of a national character – within bioinformatics with NBIS and within data analysis and data storage with SNIC. NGI offers expertise within bioinformatics and statistics that ensures the experimental design is optimal and the project is scientifically productive. The consultative role played by NGI is one of the main tasks of the infrastructure.
