Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

We work on Kaurna Country

We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the Traditional Custodians of the Land on which the SAGC is located. We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and future, and recognise their continuing connection and contribution to this land. The SAGC staff, Scientific Advisory Committee and Steering Committee are committed to ensuring that Indigenous Genomics is conducted in a culturally appropriate manner with Indigenous governance oversight. The SAGC has adopted the FAIR and CARE principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable, and for the Collective Benefit, with Authority to Control, Responsibly, and Ethically) and will implement Guiding Principles recommended by the Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group on Health Genomics.


About Us

About Us

The South Australian Genomics Centre (SAGC) was established in July 2020 as a state-wide genomics facility to support genomics research in South Australia, as well as nationally and internationally. The SAGC is South Australia’s only NCRIS-supported genomics facility, with funding support from BioPlatforms (BPA) Australia, the SA State Government, the James and Diana Ramsay foundation (JDRF) and our partner institutes- South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), The University of South Australia, Flinders University and The University of Adelaide. Our affiliate partners include the Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF) and the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI).




The vision of the SAGC is to enable innovative genomics research by providing state-of-the-art, collaborative end-to-end genomics and bioinformatics services, know-how, and cutting edge infrastructure.




The SAGC aims to provide comprehensive, cost-effective and readily accessible genomics and bioinformatics services, and infrastructure of the highest possible standard to support research excellence in human, agricultural, environmental and microbial genomics.





The SAGC provides a broad range of services including single cell and spatial transcriptomics, bulk RNA sequencing, small RNA sequencing, exome and genome sequencing, epigenomics, metagenomics and a range of other custom methods. These services are supported by a dedicated Bioinformatics Platform that support users of the facility by developing advanced and customised approaches for data analysis, integration and visualisation. The SAGC is pleased to support researchers and clinicians from all our partners institutes as well as industry partners and other external clients. All areas of genomics including animal, plant, environmental, microbial, and human genomics are supported. The SAGC also has an active education, seminar and workshop program.


We work with a breadth of genomics industry partners to bring state-of-the-art solutions to our clients across Australia.
