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.
