Core Facilites






The Norwegian Genomics Consortium

The Norwegian Genomics Consortium (NGC), provides the Norwegian and international scientific community with state-of-the-art high-throughput genomic analysis services. NGC is built on three regional Genomics Core Facilities in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, and collaborates with the microarray unit at the University of Tromsø. Together we offer wide range of analysis services using high-throughput sequencing (Illumina) and commercial microarrays (Affymetrix, Agilent and Illumina) to study genome structure, dynamics and function. Our services include experimental design, laboratory and bioinformatics analysis.

The NGC is a collaboration between groups at the Oslo University Hospital, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the University of Bergen. Since its foundation in 2000, initially as the Norwegian Microarray Consortium, it has been the leading provider of high-throughput genomic analyses in Norway. The last 15 years we ran one of the most successful FUGE program technology platforms for Research Council of Norway.

The National Consortium for Sequencing and Personalized Medicine (NCS-PM) has the pleasure of invinting to a Genome Sequencing and Personalized Medicine seminar. The seminar will mark the establishment of the NCS-PM which is a new national research infrastructure funded by the Research Council of Norway to provide researchers in Norway core facility services in human genome sequencing and to facilitate the introduction of personalized, genomic medicine into mainstream healthcare.  
We have the pleasure of having Dr. Mark Caulfield Chief Scientist of Genomics England and Dr. Joakim Lundeberg Director of the Genomics platform at the Science for Life Laboratory in Sweden as aspeaker.
Place and time: Thursday 26th of November, 1 PM, large auditorium Rikshospitalet.

The National consortium for sequencing and personalized medicine has been granted 60 MNOK for large-scale research infrastructure from the Research Council of Norway. The consortium is a collaboration between the Norwegian Sequencing Center and the Norwegian Genomics Consortium aiming to bring genome sequencing towards personalised medicine. The Genomics Core Facility is one of the leading partner of the consortium participating in cancer sequencing efforts.

The Oslo node of the ELIXIR Norway Bioinformatics Platform (Bioinformatics Core Facility), the Oslo node of the Norwegian Genomics Consortium (Genomics Core Facility) and the Norwegian Sequencing Centre are happy to invite you to an introductory hands-on course on analysis of next-generation sequencing data using bioinformatics tools. This course is partly administered by the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo, and can thus give credits to PhD and master students (see below).
