Visit to HiSeq X facility by Chief Scientist Office

On June 3rd 2016, our Clinical Division hosted a visit by NHS Scotland and the Chief Scientist Office. This was an opportunity to see for themselves the Edinburgh Genomics high throughput HiSeq X sequencing facility, based within the Roslin Institute, and hear about our contribution to genomic medicine through human genome sequencing, which offers entirely new capabilities for genetic diagnosis in the Scottish NHS.
