Genome Institute of Singapore

When the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) was established in 2000, the science of genomics was still in its infancy. Since then, genomics has proved its relevance to all aspects of biology and medicine. It is now possible to sequence entire populations and communities, resolve organs at the single-cell level, and develop treatments guided by genomic data. We are now able to edit genomes at will, synthesise chromosomes, and perform complex experiments in silico by harnessing the ever-growing reservoir of public-access data.
