Please Note: NZ Genomics will no longer be accepting new projects from 1 July 2017. Visit our Services page for further details.


If you believe that NZGL’s services would benefit your research, but want that final level of detail clarified before you decide, then come along to one of our “Talk to a bioinformation” sessions – run weekly at Massey University (Albany and Palmerston North) and The University of Auckland, and as requested at University of Otago.

Talk your research ideas over in an informal setting with a skilled bioinformatician in person or from your computer using either Skype or Zoom videoconferencing (if virtual option available).

There is no charge for our specialists’ time and there is also no obligation. By the end of the session, you should have enough information to make a fully-informed decision about the use of NZGL’s services in relation to your own research. There is no need to register, just come along or contact us during the session.
