UK Center Provides a New Home for Omics

NEW YORK, April 1 - St. George's Hospital Medical School in Tooting, London, today christened its new "Biomics" Center, a facility to conduct research in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and transcriptomics.

 

"The beauty of this new center is having the facilities to study all these aspects of biology and medicine in one place", said Tim Rutherford, scientific director of the center.

 

Rutherford said the center would encourage other universities and businesses to use the facilities "so that the UK fully exploits the technology and knowledge available on a single site."

 

Further information about the center is available here.
