University of Gothenburg

Bioinformatics and Data Centre (BDC)

The Bioinformatics and Data Centre provides new high-throughput techniques, e.g. next-generation sequencing (NGS) for clinical and pre-clinical research as part of Genomic Medicine Sweden (GMS) and SciLifeLab Clinical Genomics, together with bioinformatics and statistics expertise in analysis, data integration and visualization that facilitates meaningful and trustworthy cutting-edge biomedical research.

General information

Our partners

Clinical Genomics (CG)

Clinical Genomics Gothenburg (CGG) is one of the seven nodes from the CG platform at SciLifeLab. CGG was established in January 2016 as a collaboration between the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg and  the Laboratory Medicine at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Its mission is to facilitate translational research and help bridge the gap from research to clinical routine.

Genomic Medicine Sweden (GMS)

We are one of the seven Genomic Medicine Centres (GMC) within GMS. GMC West is a collaboration between the University of Gothenburg, the Sahlgrenska University Hospital and SciLifeLab, where we act as the primary point of contact for sequencing patient samples within healthcare, creating an integrated platform for both healthcare delivery and advanced medical research. Moreover, we are establishing a joint national infrastructure that will also facilitate the analysis, interpretation and storage of genetic data.
