The Centre for Genome Enabled Biology and Medicine (CGEBM) was established in 2012 as part of a strategic investment in genomics at Aberdeen. The creation of CGEBM brought together our existing genomics capabilities alongside investment in people, infrastructure and facilities, including next generation sequencing (NGS) capacity and bioinformatics, to provide Aberdeen with state of the art facilities and expertise to facilitate leading research across diverse fields being revolutionised by modern genomics.
The facility is fully operational with Illumina Miseq, Illumina NextSeq500, Ion Torrent Proton sequencers and specialised ancillary equipment for library preparation and QC/QA in next generation sequencing, Oxford Nanopore for long read sequencing, a dedicated single-cell lab with 10x Genomics Chromium system for single cell RNAseq, ATACseq and CNV detection, and a low-copy DNA lab for archaeology or other low copy specimens.
Our services and how to access them, are detailed in the menu on the left. For further information on our expertise and activities, please see an overview of current projects, publications, grants and community events supported by CGEBM. Please contact us to discuss your research needs.
A completed Project Form is required from you prior to scheduling of projects and services in CGEBM.
