The Scottish Genomes Partnership is part of a new collaboration in genomic medicine in which Scotland is joining AstraZeneca's global genomics initiative through the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre. This collaboration builds specific links with SGP's cancer genomics programme. This is further evidence of the strong links in Scotland between NHS Scotland, Scottish Universities and industry partners, and demonstrates Scotland's ability to attract major industry projects.
