Created in 2009, the CNAG carries out projects in DNA sequencing and analysis in collaboration with researchers from Catalonia, Spain, and the international research community to ensure our country’s competitiveness in the strategic area of genomics.

After starting operations in March 2010, CNAG has positioned itself as one of the largest European centres concerning sequencing capacity. The highly qualified staff, combined with outstanding computing infrastructure, makes CNAG a centre of excellence in data analysis. It takes part in genome sequencing and analysis projects in areas as diverse as cancer genetics, rare disorders, host-pathogen interactions, the preservation of endangered species, evolutionary studies and the improvement of species of agricultural interest.
