The Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG) is a centre of reference for genomics and is a key part of the scientific infrastructure required to advance biomedical and genomics research in Spain. With its legal incorporation into the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) on 1 July, 2015, CNAG will no longer depend on the Parc Científic de Barcelona (PCB), to which it was associated since its beginnings.
This change in CNAG’s management, which was promoted by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of the Spanish Central Administration as well as the Government of Catalonia, responds to various scientific and managerial needs. "Now we can address scientific challenges in a much more natural and integrated manner, which will strengthen genome research in Catalonia and the rest of Spain. The integration will also allow us to manage resources more effectively," says Luis Serrano, director of the CRG.
