The Genomic Platform of the University of Coimbra, UCGenomics, is a
scientific and technological infrastructure on the genomic field that
rose from the partnership of existing teams and facilities from
different departments and research centres of the University of Coimbra.
UCGenomics is a member of Genome PT, a genomic platform integrated in the National Research Infrastructures Roadmap (RNIE) sponsored by FCT (Foundation for Sciences and Technology).
The purpose of UCGenomics is to establish a sustainable infrastructure that provides technical and scientific support and access to the state-of-the-art genomic technologies, in order to promote life science research and its translation to healthcare, to environment preservation and to environment-friendly bio-industries innovation. UCGenomics also intends to promote ethical, legal and social debate on the implications of genomic revolution.
