The main objective of the INiBICA Genomics Unit is to provide research staff with state-of-the-art equipment, thus promoting the development of outstanding translational biomedical research.

Provides scientific and technical advice for the development of new analysis methods for RNA expression, DNA variability and the characterization of gene function. The Unit offers the necessary tools for all phases of genomic analysis, ranging from sample preparation to analysis and delivery of data to researchers.
