About us

The Centre for Genomic Research (CGR) is a dedicated centre that facilitates cost-effective access to multiplatform sequencing and array technologies for researchers worldwide.

We offer a wide range of applications, with associated informatics and analytical processing of data and functional interpretation.

Our commitment to research excellence is reflected in our collaboration in extensive peer reviewed studies and the attraction of more than £24 million in research income since 2008. Pioneering research projects are continually advancing our capabilities, consequently improving our service provision.

We boast a diverse portfolio of academic research that spans:

  • human and veterinary medicine
  • biotechnology
  • environmental and evolutionary biology
  • agri-tech
  • archaeology, anthropology and zoology

The CGR is a not-for-profit service provider for the global research community and is equipped with state-of-the-art next generation and 3rd generation sequencing platforms. Coupled with complementary robotics, sequence capture and array capabilities, we offer optimum, tailor-made solutions across a wide range of biological applications.

The CGR can trace its academic and service pedigree back to 2000 when the Liverpool Microarray Facility was established.
