The Infrastructure of Omics Technologies (ICTS OmicsTech) offers researchers the possibility of using singular facilities exclusively dedicated to omics technologies, with a wide spectrum of biomolecular analysis tools which provide a holistic overview of biological processes. These facilities support research, technological development and innovation activities. There are very few Institutions worldwide with similar characteristics and capacity, in terms of technology diversification, state-of-the-art instrumentation and ad hoc bioinformatics.
Advances in genomics, proteomics and metabolomics technologies have opened new avenues towards understanding molecular disease mechanisms and the behavior of cells, tissues, organs and, eventually, whole organisms.
OmicsTech is a distributed Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructure (ICTS) formed by the Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG), the CRG/UPF Proteomics Unit, and the Center of Omic Sciences (COS).
The coordination of omics services is offered through a “Single Entry Point”.
