Deep Sequencing Core Facility

***December 2018 + Christmas 2018***

Due to changes in the personnel of the Deep Sequencing Core Facility, from the 10th December until 21st December there will be limited service provided by the facility, and no project discussions without appointment.

From 22nd December 2018 until 2nd January 2019 inclusive the Facility will remain closed.

Overview of Services

The Deep Sequencing Core Facility was established in September 2010 to provide the Neuenheimer Feld Campus with access to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). We provide the possibility to construct libraries for sequencing with the focus not only on the „standard“ application but to help establish custom protocols which can be of benefit to the whole campus.

Sequencing is available on a variety of instruments all based on the Illumina Sequencing by Synthesis technology. In addition to library preparation and sequencing we also can help you with planning your sequencing experiment and offer advice on your project.
