The unit provides technical and methodological and scientific consultancy for researchers on the Can Ruti Campus and external research groups who request it. Its objective is to boost research, innovation and training in genomics technologies. In parallel it provides a daily genetic analysis service to the diagnostic units at the Germans Trias Hospital.
The unit periodically organizes and participates in Technical training courses for students on the Immunology Masters course (MSc Immunology, UB-UAB) for technical support staff. It also offers a consultancy service.
