Reference center for next generation sequencing, (epi-)genome and transcriptome analysis at Ghent University

NXTGNT was founded in 2008 to create a rich and unique substrate for groundbreaking research, development and valorization at Ghent University. The main goal of NXTGNT is the establishment of a reference center for next generation sequencing (NGS) and (epi-)genome and transcriptome analysis at Ghent University. NXTGNT establised a unique service platform by the integration of two next generation sequencing platforms with the existing research expertise in -omics and data-analysis (bioinformatics). NXTGNT's final goal is the establishment of an innovative genome analysis service facility with clear focus on

  • efficient service workflows
  • maximal application possibilities
  • the optimization of the currently available diagnostic workflows
  • the re-evaluation of data analysis capacities
