Genopolis is an alliance of three scientific public Institutions (University of Milano, University of Milano-Bicocca and the Besta Institute of Neurology) that have established a network of excellence aimed to develop, integrate and disseminate Functional Genomics.
Genopolis intends to develop integrated strategies to raise the value of massive information generated by the genomic revolution and to support interdisciplinary approaches. The Consortium will foster the scientific community to advance translational research in the fields of Cell biology and Molecular medicine, including Immunology, Neuroscience and Genetics and will promote public awareness regarding social and ethical aspects of Genomics.
Genopolis operates as a public, non-profit Consortium, located at the University of Milano-Bicocca. The Consortium has a genomic platform based on microarray technologies and acts as an Affymetrix GeneChip® service provider, to support national and international infrastructures and European networks.
GENOPOLIS offers support for experimental design of microarray experiments, bioinformatic tools for data mining and data analysis, education and training courses.
