NGI 2014 Road Trip

Locations: Umeå University, University of Gothenburg, Lund Univerity and Linköping University

In Umeå and Gothenburg the NGI 2014 Road Trip is given in parallel with the SciLifeLab Outreach Day.

Programs for Lund and Linköping are available under Related Items.


The aim of the infrastructure is to establish technologies for massive parallel sequencing (MPS) and large-scale SNP genotyping and enable the use of these technologies for the Swedish research community. It has been established by the Swedish Research Council (VR) and is hosted by SciLifeLab Sweden.

Our goal is to provide Swedish academia with state of the art technology tools for sequencing and genotyping. We operate all major sequencing platforms: Illumina HiSeq, MiSeq, SOLiD, Ion Torrent, Ion Proton, Pacific Bioscience and Argus optical mapping.

The NGI road trip aims to spread knowledge about the infrastructure and the research possibilities. We look forward to meet researches interested in using MPS and SNP genotyping in their work and to establish new contacts and learn about their needs.

The NGI directors and platform coordinators wish you a warm welcome to an information seminar, which will include: a presentation about NGI, short presentations from local PIs with experience in collaboration with the infrastructure, and individual project consultations with anyone who could be interested.

Hope to see you there!
