The new BioScience South Building includes a new custom-designed facility for the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics, the largest university-based facility of its kind in Australia. 

NSW Chief Scientist Professor Mary O’Kane officially opened the new facility on 24 July. The Centre is dedicated to supporting research by offering genomic services to academic and industry-based research groups at UNSW and Australia-wide and is one of the few facilities in Australia that accommodates a full suite of genomics technologies and links these together using process management software.

Full details can be read on the UNSW news website.
