Genomics Units

The main objective of INiBICA's Genomics Unit is to provide researchers with state-of-the-art equipment, thus promoting high-quality research for the development of outstanding translational biomedical researches.

We provide scientific and technical advice for the development of new methods of analysis in RNA expression, DNA variability and characterization of gene function. This unit provides the necessary tools for all phases of genomic analysis, from sample preparation to analysis and data delivery to researchers.
