In this Explain Podcast special episode we explore the PhiX bacteriophage and its role in sequencing the first DNA-based genome, as well as unique molecular modifiers and something sequencing definitely always needs: quality control.
The West German Genome Center (WGGC) will be funded by the Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen in 2024-2025. The WGGC was founded in 2019 as a joint competence center for state-of-the-art genome sequencing between the Universität zu Köln, the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn and the Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf while also working closely with other partners such as the Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen (DZNE) inContinue reading “New Funding for WGGC”
