The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) (Barcelona, Spain) and the National Centre for Genomic Analysis (CNAG) (Barcelona, Spain) have signed an agreement to collaborate and boost research in the field of genomic analysis.

The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) (Barcelona, Spain) and the National Centre for Genomic Analysis (CNAG) (Barcelona, Spain) have signed an agreement to collaborate and boost research in the field of genomic analysis.

By the terms of this agreement, the Structural Genomics Group of the CNAG, will join the Gene Regulation, Stem Cells and Cancer programme of the CRG and share their resources. The Structural Genomics group will be able to carry out its laboratory work at the CRG. At the same time, it will provide the CRG with its expertise in 3D genome analysis. The computational activity of the group, which involves both sequencing and sequence analysis, will continue to be based at the CNAG.

Luis Serrano, director of the CRG, said, “Modern science is increasingly interdisciplinary; it is impossible for a single centre to have all the expertise and technology necessary to be globally competitive. That is why strategic partnerships such as that we have with the CNAG contribute to increasing the competitiveness of national centres.”

Ivo Gut, director of the CNAG, commented, “We already have joint projects with the CRG but this agreement will foster an even closer collaboration which will increase the capacity of both institutions. This collaboration not only optimizes resources but also increases the capacity of Spanish institutions to retain research talent.”
