GenomeDenmark is a national sequencing and bioinformatics platform involving universities, hospitals and private companies. The main purpose of the platform is to build infrastructures and know-how for large-scale genomics to enable continued cutting edge genomics research in Denmark. This goal is realized through investments in sequencing equipment and super computers, building of know-how as well as coordination of national efforts. The platform is established via two large demonstration projects aiming to demonstrate application of large-scale genomics in biological fields relevant to diagnostics, medicine and future healthcare. The projects concern identification of unknown pathogens involved in cancer formation and the construction of a high-quality Danish reference genome, respectively. Platform infrastructure and know-how can be assessed through collaboration with platform partners.
