We are situated in the Viikki campus in eastern Helsinki. Viikki is one of the largest university centers in Scandinavia concentrating on various biological sciences. Since 2016, our laboratory is in the 4th floor (D-staircase) of Biocenter 2 building.
The laboratory was founded in 2008 by fusing two existing laboratories into one larger unit.
Our group has two distinct functions:
1) We are a core facility providing DNA sequencing service.
2) We perform research projects on several topics ranging from bioinformatics to de novo genome sequencing of entire genomes.
