Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics

The Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics located at UNSW Sydney is a focus for the development and application of genomics and transcriptomics in Australia. Its purpose is to deliver internationally competitive genomic services of the highest quality using the latest technology. It provides services on a not-for-profit basis and supports research in the biomedical, environmental, conservation, food and agriculture, biotech and bioengineering sectors.

The Ramaciotti Centre has the capability to work on projects of scale and to provide bespoke services to meet specific project requirements. Clients of the Centre can get advice on experimental design, and collaborative bioinformatics support from the Systems Biology Initiative, which is an affiliate of the Centre.
