Deep Sequencing Core Facility

 ***Core Facility closed 3rd August until 18th August***

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.
