The David Gunn Genomics Facility was officially opened by Mr Gunn in 2014. Mr Gunn’s generosity resulted in the largest single donation SAHMRI has received so far and has enabled SAHMRI to establish this facility which is available to both SAHMRI and external researchers.

Located on Level 5 of the SAHMRI building within the Cancer Theme the facility has Illumina Hiseq, Nextseq and Miseq next generation sequencers, a Fluidigm PCR system and two Quantstudio 7 Real-Time instruments. Data analysis is supported internally by SAHMRI’s high performance computer complemented by external infrastructure at eResearchSA.
