The CRG Genomics Core Facility was established in 2008 and currently supports next generation sequencing technologies. 

Since its foundation, the CRG has made significant investments in Genomics, including the purchase of several next generation sequencing instruments. Several high-throughput technologies have been implemented to assess differential expression, inter-individual genetic variation, microRNA discovery, genome sequencing, targeted resequencing, epigenetic profiling and identification of binding sites of DNA or RNA-associated proteins.

Researchers find a gene that causes Opitz C syndrome in the only patient with this rare disorder in Catalonia (10/03/2017)
The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, identifies the gene that causes Opitz C syndrome in the only patient diagnosed with this ultra-rare disorder in Catalonia, which affects only sixty people in the world. The identified mutation in the gene MAGEL2 coincides with the one seen in some patients with another minority disease, the Schaaf-Yang syndrome.
