Sequence-Led Research

Scientists across the Norwich Research Park are using a variety of techniques based on next-generation sequencing technology to examine the structure, function and evolution of microbial genomes, to characterise complex microbiomes from environments including the soil, the ocean and the human gut, and to assess and combat the spread of plant and human diseases.

Technology platforms onsite include Illumina MiSeq, PacBio and Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing, supported by state-of-the-art scientific computing and data storage facilities.
