The All Wales Medical Genomics Service (AWMGS) is proud to announce that the NovaSeqTM 6000 is now being used for Genomics research in Wales.


Purchased with Welsh Government funding as part of the Genomics for Precision Medicine Strategy, the NovaSeq offers unprecedented next generation sequencing (NGS) capacity, and is capable of sequencing multiple human genomes in under 48 hours.
The innovative next generation sequencer will transform Genomics services and research in Wales and help to secure our place at the forefront of the Genomic medicine revolution.

What does this mean for genomics services in Wales?NovaSeq6000

The NovaSeq will allow AWMGS to transform the diagnostic genomics servicesthat we provide to our patients across Wales. From high throughput whole exome sequencing, to rapid genome sequencing, the NovaSeq provides cutting edgetechnology that will ensure we are able to provide high quality genomics servicesthat our patients deserve.”
“…We envisage the NovaSeq becoming the main sequencing technology used for NGS data production for research in Wales, resulting in faster and larger scale sequencing provision for researchers.”
“Using the Novaseq to conduct large scale whole genome sequencing, the Division of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences will to continue to conduct internationally competitive research into mental health in Wales… quote marks 2
