Important information
!  We are moving to CMU 6 – laboratory A06.2707.a in March 2017  !
Please note that the Platform will have limited activity from the 20th of February to the 13th of March.

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 to monitor gene expression, determine genotypes / discover variants and analyze protein-DNA / DNA-DNA interactions on a whole-genome scale.


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.

High throughput single-cell

• January 11, 2016

Thanks to the C1 instrument from Fluidigm, we generated our first high throughput single-cell mRNA-seq data set: the transcriptome of 1600 single-cells has been analyzed in a run!
