The Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (MINECO) has included in the National Scientific and Technological Infrastructure Map (ICTS) the Infrastructure for OMICS technologies (IOT).
This new ICTS is a joint effort between the Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) and the Centre for Omic Sciences (COS) that will offer researchers a globally competitive singular facility with a spectrum of biomolecular analysis tools for holistic capture of biological processes.
The IOT is divided in two main areas:
- Genomics – focused on 2nd generation sequencing technologies and the corresponding analysis tools.
- Metabolomics – complemented with other Omic techniques, including proteomics and transcriptomics.
The updated ICTS map on November 7, 2018, validates the Integrated Infrastructure on Omics Technologies (IOT), formed by the COS and the CRG with the CNAG and the Proteomics Unit of the CRG.
