The Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics was established in August 2000 as a focus for the development and application of Functional Genomics in New South Wales. The Centre’s core facility is located in the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of New South Wales. This facility provides equipment and expertise to assist researchers in the use of microarrays, sequencing and high-throughput technology.
The Ramaciotti Centre is affiliated with other universities and medical research centres in the Sydney region. These include the University of Sydney, Macquarie University, the University of Technology Sydney, The University of Newcastle, the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the Kolling Institute. Representatives from each sit on the Centre’s steering committee.
