The Netherlands X-omics Initiative is a National Roadmap Large-Scale Research Infrastructure, partially funded by NWO with a total budget of 40 million euro.

X-omics aims to realise the next generation 'omics' infastructure across the Netherlands, by combining technologies in the field of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and data analysis, integration & stewardship.

This infrastucture will be accessible to all researchers. To allow communication between the users of the infrastucture a X-omics community will be established. 

This community will interact via:
● Meetings
● News letters
Social media

If you would like to join the X-omics community, please send an e-mail to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our Helpdesk

The Netherlands X-omics Initiative will establish a central helpdesk to provide access to the X-omics research infrastructure and its respective facilities.

You can contact the helpdesk assistant for:
  • Expert assistance to help design your X-omics experiments.
  • Analyses of samples in 1 of the facilities (the assistant can refer you to the right facility).
  • For general information about the X-omics project.
  • For information on specific activities such as the training schools or events organized by the consortium.
