Omics Technology Infrastructure (OMICSTECH)

Infraestructura de Tecnologías Ómicas (OMICSTECH)

This distributed ICTS offers the complete spectrum of technologies needed to quantify the array of elements that make up biological systems, including DNA, RNA, epigenetic markers, proteins, metabolites and structural components such as membranes. It provides an integrated solution for deciphering biological processes through systems biology.

It is composed of:

Sequencing Platform of the National Centre for Genomic Analysis (CNAG-CRG) and the Proteomic Platform of the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG)

The National Centre for Genomic Analysis (CNAG) was founded in 2009 by the General State Administration and the Government of Catalonia. The Genomic platform of the CNAG has twelve second-generation DNA sequencers (nine HiSeq2000, two HiSeq2500 and one MiSeq) capable of sequencing more than 800 gigabases per day, equivalent to eight complete human genomes every 24 hours. It also has a powerful computing facility, with 2.7 petabytes of data storage, more than 1,200 computing nodes with a capacity of 13 TFLOPS, a 10 GBytes/s internal network and multiple 10 GBytes/s direct connections to the National Supercomputing Centre (BSC-CNS).

Metabolomic Platform of the Centre for Omic Sciences​​​​​​​

The Centre for Omic Sciences is owned by the Rovira i Virgili University and managed by the Technological Centre for Nutrition and Health. By integrating multiple metabolomics and proteomics technologies in a single facility, it is possible to use the most suitable technologies, or a combination of these, to determine metabolic profiling. Non-targeted metabolomics methodologies make it possible to test hypotheses and investigate the biochemical mechanisms involved, using complementary omics technologies such as genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics and validating them in vitro, in vivo and in humans.
