Mission Statement

The mission of the Laboratory of Functional Genomics at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun is to discover and analyze the functional genes in Mammalian species. The information will provide new insights into cellular processes and development of novel genomic strategies for their genetic improvement. The Laboratory of Functional Genomics at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun was established on 1st of april, 2009 and headed by Prof dr hab. Chandra S. Pareek Our Genomics-lab at UMK is dedicated on interdisciplinary translational research in advanced genomics, which includes mammalian functional genomics, next-generation genome sequencing, Gene expression profiling studies, Bioinformatics, Pharmacogenomics, development of Biomarkers, development of BioBank for adult cancer in human, translational cancer research. Our Genomics-lab located at Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika - UMK in Torun, Poland is capable with tools and techniques like routine sample preparation (DNA, RNA and protein) genotyping assays, high throughput genome sequencing, analysis gene expression profiling, real time PCR.
We are a young scientific team and our staff’s research activities in form of Publications, abstracts, scientific talks, book chapters can be find here. Genomics Lab at UMK Torun has a well defined teaching curricula which include Introduction of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics, DNA markers and linkage mapping in mammals, Molecular diagnosis techniques in mammals, Methodologies in advanced genomics, Gene expression profiling and development of biomarkers, Advanced functional genomics in mammals, Next-generation sequencing technologies and all classes and lectures are conducted in English.
We are also actively looking for scientific collaborations with in Poland and EU and rest of world for joint research proposals. We have a proven track record of receiving grant from local, national and international institutions.
