Due to current Sars-CoV-2/ COVID19 pandemic the University of Aberdeen campuses closed from Friday 20th March 2020 and staff are remote working. CGEBM will not be accepting or processing any samples at this time. If you have questions about your project, please contact CGEBM Manager, Elaina Collie-Duguid by email. Our bioinformaticians continue to work remotely and data analysis is continuing as normal.


The Centre for Genome-Enabled Biology and Medicine (CGEBM) aims to accelerate discovery in genome-enabled research across the University of Aberdeen.

To achieve this the Centre couples provision of various genomic technologies, including next generation sequencing (NGS), with the delivery of learning activities and resources to enable researchers to develop expertise in the application of these technologies in their research, teaching and postgraduate training.

Services in the CGEBM are available to University of Aberdeen researchers, as well as external Universities, Research Institutes and Commercial entities. To access these services please contact the Centre Manager Dr Elaina Collie-Duguid.

Dr. Elaina Collie-Duguid manages the CGEBM, which is jointly directed by
Prof. Zosia Miedzybrodzka, a clinical academic in the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and
Prof. James Prosser OBE, Chair of Environmental Microbiology in the School of Biological Sciences.
