Who we are

The Genomics Platform of the University of Geneva provides consulting and access to the state-of-the-art methods in genomic technologies.

These technologies enable whole genomes, exomes, transcriptomes as well as more targeted sequencing. SNP analysis (Genome-Wide Association Studies and cytogenetics), DNA copy number profiling and DNA methylation is also proposed.


The Genomics Platform offers a complete solution from advice on experimental design to data analysis.

  • Experimental design: recommendations about samples preparation, replicates number, internal controls are given. Guidelines for the selection of the relevant technology depending on the project are provided.
  • Experiment: samples processing is performed either by the user under full supervision of the platform staff or by the platform staff itself.
  • Data analysis: depending on the application, standardized or more specific analysis pipelines are applied. Data processing tools are developed by the bioinformatics staff and proposed to users. Tools for data visualization, biological interpretation, pathway and Gene Ontology are also proposed.


Potential users are encouraged to contact Mylene Docquier to discuss about their project.

Open doors – March 31, 2017

Posted on March 24, 2017

To celebrate the move of the Platform to the CMU building A, 6th floor, and show you our new space in laboratories A06.2705, 6, 7 & 2906, we would like to invite you for a drink on Friday, March 31, from 2 to 5 pm.

The HiSeq 4000 is running!

Posted on March 14, 2017

Due to the patterned flow cell technology, this new Illumina sequencer offers a deeper coverage (30% reads more per lane) and allows a higher sequencing speed for a lower cost.
