Scientific Description
The National Genome Analysis Centre (Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico-CNAG) mission is to carry out large-scale projects in genome analysis that will lead to significant improvements in people’s health and quality of life, in collaboration with the Catalan, Spanish, European and International research and clinical community. The integrated CNAG infrastructure produces more than 800 Gbases of sequence data per day and has one of the largest DNA sequencing capacities in Europe. Our particular strengths lie in cancer genomics, rare disease gene identification, infectious disease genomics, genomics of model organisms, agrogenomics, epigenomics, modeling of the nucleus, comparative genomics and single cell analysis. New laboratory methods, new sequencing methods and data analytical procedures implemented and developed continuously. CNAG is certified Illumina CS Pro – Certified Provider and Agilent Exome Sequencing Certified Provider.
