World-Renowned Health Research on the Hill

UC Santa Cruz’s genomics investigators have built a research powerhouse in sequencing, storing, cataloging, assembling, validating, and analyzing huge volumes of genomic data in their mission to use genomics to positively impact health, nature, and society. The UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute is leading the effort to establish global standards to capture and share genomic data fairly and responsibly. Without a medical school and hospital, UCSC has become a neutral, trusted genomics research partner to medical institutions and universities around the world, contributing databases and research, and improving human health. This is made possible by its world-class computational abilities.
