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!
