PMGC, originally established in 1998, provides many researchers around the world with reliable genomics services. A complete range of Bioinformatics services are also available for data generated within the centre or from outside sources.

In order to provide a complete solution, we also assist in preparation of supporting letters for grant applications and of publication manuscripts.
