Explain Podast Episode 10 is out!

Season 2 of the Explain Podcast is out&about – yey! We start by discussing Bionano and Nabsys – curious tech that we’ve classified as…Genome Mapping! At the end of each episode, we now release a new subsection QuickGen, where hosts shortly discuss one term from Genetics. This time it’s about transposons or…JUMPING GENES! Let’s keep… Continue reading Explain Podast Episode 10 is out!

NGS Webinar June I 2024

Ana Conesa is one of the leading specialists in RNA transcript isoform sequencing. She and her partners pioneered the implementation of novel longread Sequencing technologies – both PacBio and Oxford Nanopore – to explore their use in addressing pressing questions in RNA Biology. By establishing well-curated lab protocols, and developing novel bioinformatics tools, she and… Continue reading NGS Webinar June I 2024

New funding opportunities for sequencing projects!

Great news! Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) – German Research Foundation offers additional opportunities to apply for funding high sequencing costs projects together with academic sequencing institutions. Sequencing projects with costs in both medical and non-medical environments can be funded. We and our fellow competence centers in the NGS-CN– NGS Competence Center Tübingen (NCCT)– DRESDEN-concept Genome Center–… Continue reading New funding opportunities for sequencing projects!
