The Tayside Centre for Genomic Analysis
The primary aim of the Centre is to provide genomic analysis services to the University of Dundee and NHS Trust Departments. The service is also available to external research and clinical groups, capacity permitting. Funds accumulated through the successful operation of the service are used to support the continued development of the core service unit within the University of Dundee. The Centre endeavours to maintain an inexpensive service while providing state-of-the-art equipment to support the activities of its clients.
The service has been in operation for approximately 27 years and now resides within the Medical Research Institute at Ninewells Hospital and Medical School. Initially set up to provide a DNA Sequencing Service for a single research group, the unit currently provides genetics analysis services for over 60 research groups within the research and clinical community. The Service is viewed as a great success and continues to expand the variety of techniques it offers to its customers.
