Deep Sequencing Core Facility




Christmas Holidays


The Facility is closed due to staff holidays between 24th December 2022 and 8th January 2023 inclusive.








We are still experiencing occasional difficulty in sourcing plasticware, in particular filter tips, and certain reagents. This is may lead to delays in sample preparation. 








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.
