Unit profile


Markus Heidenblad is head of this facility.


CTG is a prioritized research infrastructure at the Faculty of Medicine. The center has great expertise in several sequencing and genomics technologies and is at the technological forefront with access to very powerful sequencing equipment (e.g. the Illumina NovaSeq 6000). Services are focused towards next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies (e.g. short- and long-read sequencing as well as various single-cell applications) and CTG works closely together with the regional healthcare to develop and translate research findings into improved clinical diagnostics. Together with a large-scale sequencing unit at Region Skåne CTG also constitutes a facility within the national SciLifeLab research infrastructure (Clinical Genomics Lund), and is also actively involved in the Genomic Medicine Sweden initiative. CTG is located at BMC D14 and currently employs 13 people. For further information, please see or contact Markus Heidenblad, head of facility (046-222 04 25).
