The BBI’s Northwest Clinical Genomics Center is the largest self-sustaining genome center in the Pacific Northwest. It is producing over 21,000 genomes in 2018 as part of NIH-NHLBI’s TOPMed project, and has previously produced over 15,000 genomes and 24,000 exomes as part of the NIH-NHLBI’s TOPMed and ESP projects. It is also the home of one of the NIH-NHGRI’s Centers for Mendelian Genomics. The platform has expertise in genome and exome sequencing, and additional capabilities in RNA-seq, genome-wide methylation profiling, and other ‘omics’. In collaboration with the BBI Precision Diagnostics Platform, it is now offering CLIA-certified exome and genome sequencing.

The Large-Scale DNA Sequencing Platform is overseen by Dr. Debbie Nickerson, PhD, Professor of Genome Sciences and Adjunct Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington.
