University of California Sequencing Consortium

University of California: Sequencing Consortium

The UC Genomic Sequencing Consortium brought together twenty-two Genomic Sequencing Leaders from seven UC campuses gathered at UC Berkeley for a two-day working session on May 12 and 13, 2014 to better understand the needs of genomic sequencing within the UC system. The consortium helps provide UC Sequencing stakeholders greater insight into potential benefits available to collective the UC system in the form of time and cost reductions, and opportunities to further meet the needs of the research community.  We expect these efforts will result in a new, collaborative approach to provide next genomic sequencing services to UC researchers.
