Genomics Facility

The Genomics Facility (also referred to as the Monash University Malaysia Genomics Facility - MUMGF) within the Tropical Medicine and Biology Multidisciplinary Platform, provides next generation DNA sequencing services to support the research of Monash University staff and students from both Malaysia and Australia. The facility also supports a number of external collaboration and service contract clients, both local and international. Annual funding to support the facility is provided by Monash University Malaysia, which is supplemented through income from external grants and contract sequencing. The facility is also the first laboratory and research platform on campus to achieve ISO 9001:2015 and is working closely with Monash Australia to maintain the Platform Quality Management System (PQMS). Since the establishment of the facility in July 2013, we have over 130 publications and generated close to 1.4 TB (TeraBytes) of sequencing data from almost 240 MiSeq runs (as of April 2019).
