We also make use of University facilities, including:
- Next Generation Sequencing Facility: The facility is a partnership between the University of Leeds & the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust equipped with Illumina HiSeq 2500, HiSeq 3000 and MiSeq sequencers
- High resolution medical-grade visualisation workstations: Ultra-high resolution workstation and display-walls to develop a virtual microscope that allows histopathologists to diagnose cancer faster than, and as accurately as, a conventional microscope
- University's High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities: Consists of over 8,000 cores of Intel and AMD compute capacity and over 300TB of data storage
- Leeds Institute for Data Analytics: State-of-the-art facilities in data analytics
- EPSRC National Facility for Innovative Robotic Systems: A national resource for the fabrication of complex systems which can be used for academic and industrial collaborations.
