Clinical Genomics Linköping

Clinical Genomics Linköping was established in 2019 as a regional distributed node of the Diagnostic and Development platform of SciLifeLab and the section of molecular genetics at the Linköping University Core unit. CG Linköping is organized at the medical faculty and operates in close collaboration with the clinical NGS platform at the University hospital in Linköping forming the local Genomic Medicine Sweden node GMC-south east.


Clinical Genomics Linköping provides a research hub and infrastructure for molecular genetic analyses serving basic and clinical scientists. It has organized its services around focus areas including cancer, rare diseases, complex diseases and microbiology translating research to the clinical setting and implementation in health care.
