About Us

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), (epi-)genome and transcriptome analysis at Ghent University. NXTGNT establised a unique service platform by the integration of a state-of-the-art NGS library preparation facility with several sequencing platforms and a strong expertise in -omics data-analysis (bioinformatics). NXTGNT's final goal is the establishment of an innovative genome analysis service facility with clear focus on

  • efficient, automated service workflows
  • maximal application possibilities
  • innovative workflows
  • integrated data analysis

NXTGNT is supported by several Ghent University partners from different faculties: the Laboratory for Computational Genomics and Bioinformatics (BIOBIX), the Laboratory for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (LabFBT), ProGenTomics, and the Ghent University IOF valorisation consortium BIOMARKED
