About Us

Edinburgh Genomics

Edinburgh Genomics has established a global reputation for the provision of advanced genomics services. We produce high-quality, high volume data for a diverse community of research collaborators and customers across academia, government and industry. Embedded within the rich academic environment of the University of Edinburgh and drawing on world class expertise, we have a proven track record of delivering superior quality results to exacting standards. Our work has supported more than 700 peer-reviewed publications and our facilities are recognised by three of the UK’s leading Biomedical Research Councils.

With over 20 years experience of providing genomics services to life science researchers, our talented team has what it takes to deliver the highest quality data for the most challenging of projects.

Edinburgh Genomics has two cutting edge sequencing facilities: 

Clinical Genomics (EGC) is our high-throughput, whole-genome sequencing facility based at the renowned Roslin Institute. EGC delivers genome resequencing data from a fully automated workflow using Illumina’s HiSeq X system, with a highly skilled team of scientists and bioinformaticians. EGC specialises in providing whole-genome sequencing of any organism with an unmatched level of quality and throughput. Our clinical facility is able to deliver fully traceable, high-quality data with rapid project turn-around times. From initial sample receipt, we provide project updates as your samples progress between each stage of the automated workflow thanks to our dedicated LIMS system. 

Genome Science (EGS) is based at the King’s Buildings campus and offers access to a wide range of genomics platforms including Illumina’s new NovaSeq technology and Pacific Biosciences latest Sequel platform. This modular and flexible approach to providing the latest technologies, combined with expert knowledge across a broad range of applications, supports a large and diverse portfolio of scientific research projects. The EGS team also offers a wide range of bioinformatics services, from data QC to genome assembly, variant identification and interpretation, in addition to a programme of popular genomics and informatics training workshops.
