MAD: Dutch Genomics Service & Support Provider

The MAD is the genomics and bioinformatics expertise center of the University of Amsterdam. Since 2000, we operate both as worldwide service provider and support partner on genomics technologies and bioinformatics for academic and industrial research & development projects.

With our team of ~ 18 expert molecular biologists, statisticians, bioinformaticians, and informaticians we offer tailor-made services & support in the field of high-throughput gene-expression and genome analyses.

Our primary technology platforms are:

  • next-generation sequencing (Ion Proton™)
  • microarray technology (Affymetrix Genechip® & GeneTitan®, and Agilent).

Our superfast genome-wide Ion Proton™ DNA & RNA NGS system.

As genomics service and support provider, we offer tailor-made services in the field of gene expression (e.g. miRNA-seq, RNA-seq), DNA analysis (e.g. SNP analysis) and related bioinformatics. For this we have our wet-lab to take care of all genomics technology services and our bioinformatics support group for all omics data analyses.

We are open to collaboration or participation in projects concerning genomics technology or analysis, so contact us at
