National Centre of Medical Genomics (NCMG) is the only research infrastructure in the Roadmap for Large Research, Development and Innovation Infrastructures of the Czech Republic focused on medical genomics. Its existence and support must be therefore one of national priorities. Local (national) genomic infrastructure is the only way how we can unite genomic experts, clinicians, scientist, patients and industry to study, identify and understand causes of individual and population specific diseases. Interdisciplinary collaboration will increase competitiveness of Czech biomedical science and our recent results clearly document, that this approach leads to significant discoveries (e.g. identification of causal genes and elucidation of molecular basis of > 20 human genetic diseases, leukemia, aspergillosis, inherited neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases, skin diseases and metabolics diseases), may attract foreign investigators to use the expertize and may have economic impact (new diagnostic products introduced on the market thanks to collaboration of MU and company Generi BioTech). Infrastructure is also important for education and training of new generation of scientists, computing specialists, bioinformaticians, statisticians, instrument operators, clinical genomicists and clinicians. All participating groups are involved in pregraduate and postgraduate education as well as in organization of specialised training programs and courses and organisation of workshops and symposia, e.g. Next-gen Sequencing Technologies and Applications organized in 2013 in Brno.
