The Genomic Core Facility at UiB would like to thank the Trond Mohn Foundation for funding the NGS service that we offer. This funding is given back to our UiB and Hukeland university hospital users in the form of discounts on sequencing projects. From 2017 about 150 NGS projects has been supported through this funding.
