Clinical Genomics Stockholm

The Clinical Genomics Stockholm unit provides a dedicated research infrastructure for projects utilising massively parallel / next generation sequencing technologies. All projects are carried out in close collaboration with the Swedish healthcare system. The unit serves as a competence center assisting the translation of genomics-based tools to routine clinical care. All work is carried out in close collaboration with medical expertise provided by the clinical diagnostic laboratories and patients’ managing physicians. Also, the unit aims to improve the capacity of the public health microbiology for national surveillance of infectious diseases and for epidemic preparedness.


  • DNA sequencing using short-read sequencing
    • Clinical whole-genome sequencing
    • Clinical exome sequencing
    • Microbial whole-genome sequencing (bacteria and virus)
    • Metagenomic sequencing
    • Targeted panels using various bait sets for myeloid and lymphoid malignancies and solid tumours (contact for detailed information)
    • RNA Seq using both poly A based priming
    • Ready-made libraries for rapid turnaround time sequencing (prepared by collaborator)


  • Large-scale analyses of the human genome and transcriptome, including targeted panels, exomes and whole genomes.
  • Microbial analyses based on whole genome sequencing.

Current focus areas include inherited diseases, cancers and microbial surveillance applications. We are continuously looking for additional applications to expand the current focus areas.
