Clinical Genomics Göteborg

Clinical Genomics Göteborg was established in January 2016 as a collaborative effort between the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg and Area 4, Laboratory Medicine at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Its aim is to facilitate translational research and help bridge the gap from research to clinical routine. Our sequencing and bioinformatics units are closely associated, providing an end-to-end solution from sample to analysis. Translational research projects are carried out in close collaboration with both researchers and clinicians, locally and nationally.


We provide sequencing and bioinformatics support for clinical research and clinical implementation projects with a focus on NGS, including:

  • Project design support
  • Whole genome, clinical exome and panel sequencing
  • Bacterial genome and metagenomics sequencing
  • RNA sequencing
  • Single-cell sequencing
  • Bioinformatics support
  • Cluster hardware and software support (infrastructure and storage for NGS applications)


  • Acquired Diseases
  • Hereditary Diseases
  • Microbiology
  • Ultrasensitive detection of cell-free tumour DNA
