Sequencing services and more

NGS will be a key technology in the future life and medical sciences, and in 2017 the DFG launched the national NGS Competence Center (NGS-CC) initiative with the aim of modernizing and harmonizing NGS infrastructures of German universities. With funding granted in March 2018, the WGGC started its activities officially on January 1st, 2019. More than 50% of the newly acquired NGS and bioinformatics capacity at the production sites is committed as service to the scientific community. All the WGGC partners further serve the scientific community through the provision of consultation, collaboration, and/or data analysis at the requested level. Find out more about us.

NGS COUNSELING

Check out our production sites and get in touch to receive counseling regarding your sequencing project, including advice on the right technology, protocols for sample preparation, data processing and analysis. Find here a document from the SIG4/5 (Technology & Production) detailing the input recommendations for the most popular applications.
