First Irish genome sequencing lab opens

A new cutting-edge DNA-sequencing laboratory was opened last Monday in Trinity College Dublin's Institute of Molecular Medicine

A new cutting-edge DNA-sequencing laboratory was opened last Monday in Trinity College Dublin's (TCD) Institute of Molecular Medicine.

Ireland's first Genome Sequencing Laboratory will enable research into psychiatric disorders, infectious diseases, disorders of the immune system and other human diseases. The laboratory is available to all academic and industry-based researchers in Ireland.

The new technology allows scientists to undertake studies in molecular biology and genetics research that were previously not technically or economically feasible.

The Trinity Genome Sequencing Laboratory is funded by a Selective Finance for Investment grant awarded to Dr Derek Morris and TCD's School of Medicine. Dr Morris is a principal investigator in the Neuropsychiatric Genetics Research Group in Trinity's Department of Psychiatry at the School of Medicine.
