Genomic Medicine

We are applying emerging sequencing technology to link changes in the genome to clinical decision making.

Genomic medicine is an emerging technology driven approach for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease in which testing for changes or variants in the genome (genetic makeup) of a patient, tumour or infectious agent informs clinical decision-making.

What we do

Our work in genomic medicine combines the work of common and rare disease researchers, with the technologies and expertise of our Next Generation Sequencing facility and Applied Bioinformatics team and the expertise of colleagues in the NHS All Wales Medical Genetics laboratory.
