iSEQ

Centre for Integrative Sequencing

iSEQ in brief

iSEQ was launched in 2012 as one of Aarhus University’s new interdisciplinary centres, encompassing three of the university’s four main academic areas: Health, Science and Technology, and Business and Social Sciences. The participating departments include Department of Biomedicine, Department of Clinical Medicine, Department of Bioscience, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, and Department of Economics and Business. In addition, the Centre collaborates with several national and international research institutions.

The overall aim of iSEQ is to integrate multi-layered biological sequencing data with comprehensive phenotypic and environmental data to increase the understanding of the complex molecular systems governing biological function and human disease.

Aarhus Genome Center - iSEQ seminar series on Precision Medicine

 

Building on the iSEQ center we have established Aarhus Genome Center based on collaboration between Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital / Central Region Denmark. The Aarhus Genome Center will ensure running and expansion of the GenomeDK supercomputer cluster and strengthening the infrastructure for research, education, and clinical applications in particular within the field of genomics and Precision/Personalized Medicine.

To celebrate this, we now initiate a seminar series on Precision Medicine.

The first talk is by Professor Gerome Breen, KCL, on

                        Thursday 1 February 2018 at 10.00 – 11.00

Title of the talk: The genetics of depression: exploring the role of traumatic environments while trying to find new drugs and targets.

Venue: Eduard Biermann Auditory, The Lakeside Theatres, Bartholins Allé 3, Aarhus University.
