Combating Common Diseases with Large-Scale Sequencing Technology

Uppsala University in Sweden, home to the UPPMAX Center for Advanced Computational Science, is expanding operations to provide biomedical researchers with large-scale sequencing technology. This technology can be used for studies on the impact of the genome on common disease. For example, the DNA modifications in a cancer cell can be catalogued by the new technology and used to help identify which gene mutations increase the risk of common diseases including cancer, diabetes, obesity and autoimmune-related diseases. UPPMAX has received funding to obtain three of the new technology sequencing machines.
