The SNP&SEQ Technology Platform in Uppsala, Sweden aims to offer genotyping and next generation sequencing services of high quality using the latest technologies, to academic researchers in Sweden.
The facility was established 2001 focusing on SNP genotyping. After obtaining funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation 2007 the facility expanded with Illumina sequencing service. The SNP&SEQ Technology Platform is accredited by SWEDAC according to the European quality standard ISO/IEC 17025, as a guarantee to our users of our high quality standards.
The SNP&SEQ Technology Platform, together with NGI Stockholm and NGI Uppsala: Uppsala Genome Center, makes up the National Genomic Infrastructure (NGI). NGI is one of the largest technical platforms within the infrastructure of Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab), a national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research. Through NGI we provide our users access to a comprehensive range of technologies instruments and services and offer favourable prices on all of our services to academic researchers in Sweden, who typically only pay for reagents and other consumables.
The facility director is Professor Ann-Christine Syvänen who is also head of the research group Molecular Medicine at the Department of Medical Sciences. The research group was established by Professor Syvänen 1998 and has been studying human diseases using modern technology for genomics ever since.
The facility is funded by SciLifeLab, Uppsala University and the Swedish Council for Research Infrastructures (VR-RFI).
A national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.
With the aim to enable scientist within Swedish academia to perform world-class research projects in genomics.
Studying human diseases using modern technology for genomics since 1998.
