The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) is hosted by Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab), a Swedish national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.
NGI is one of SciLifeLabs largest technical platform both in terms of number of projects and number of users. It provides access to technology for massively parallel/next generation DNA sequencing, genotyping at all scales and associated bioinformatics support to researchers based in Sweden. It comprises four facilities; NGI Stockholm (Genomics Production and Applications development), NGI Uppsala (SNP&SEQ Technology Platform), and NGI Uppsala (Uppsala Genome Center).
NGI was launched January 1st 2013 and originates from the Swedish Research Council RFI infrastructure SNISS. NGI follows the VR RFI guidelines for national infrastructures and is supported by the Swedish Research Council (VR), host universities (Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, and Uppsala University), and SciLifeLab. In addition, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) has provided critical capital support for new instruments and computational infrastructure.
