The Centre for Genomic Sciences (formerly known as Genome Research Centre) was established to provide leadership in genome research in Hong Kong and the region by developing expertise and infrastructure for studies in genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics. It also aims to facilitate the translation of knowledge into applications for the understanding of disease mechanisms and for the development of diagnostic and therapeutic measures.

The Centre has participated in the International HapMap Project, in collaboration with other major genome centres around the world. During the outbreak of SARS in 2003, the Centre supported the Departments of Microbiology and Zoology in the identification and subsequent sequencing of the agent of the disease. The Centre also undertook the whole genome sequencing project of Laribacter hongkongenesis.

Centre scientists are developing methodologies for studying the role of genetic variations in disease, and have identified genetic loci that contribute to Mendelian and complex disorders.
