Advanced Genomics Center was established October 1st., 2011, with the aim to combine the latest genomics technology, i.e., next generation sequencing, for example, and the genetic resources, that have been collected and constructed throughout the history of this institute, to create resources for new-generation genetics.

Since such resources should have links among biological (phenotypic) annotations, data from genetic as well as genomic researches, this center will work closely with other laboratories of Genetic Strains Research Center, and research communities around the country. This center is also expected to become core facility for research communities to provide latest technologies and tools of the present-day genomics.

To answer the expectations and heavy demand of genome analyses from the universities and research communities, the target projects that will be conducted in this center will be chosen through NIG’s Collaborative Research Program that is open to researchers outside of NIG.
