Biomedicum Functional Genomics Unit (FuGU)

Biomedicum Functional Genomics Unit (FuGU) provides a wide range of services related to functional genomics. These services cover genome profiling: Microarrays, Bioinformatics, qPCR and Next-Generation Sequencing (i.e. RNAseq and DNAseq), as well as areas such as virus mediated gene silencing and overexpression.

We are also housing genome-wide lentiviral shRNA libraries which contain clones for 16,000 human and mouse genes each.

The unit is located in Biomedicum Helsinki and operates under the national Biocenter Finland infrastructure network.
