The Research Infrastructure
OMIC-Engine is an allocated research infrastructure in a national level. Four Greek universities (University of Thessaly, National Technical University of Athens, University of Patras and Democritus University of Thrace) are the main research contributors regarding omic technologies in Greece. In parallel, five more academic institutions with complementary know-how (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Agricultural University of Athens, University of Ioannina, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and National Hellenic Research Foundation) contribute to the development of crucial collaborations in order to address a plethora of research issues in the field of Synthetic Biology and their exploitation from the industry sector.
The Research Infrastructure consists of four Hubs in Larissa, Alexandroupolis, Patras and Athens with a distinctive and complementary role.
