Core FacilityDeep Sequencing Facility
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 on the establishment of custom protocols which can be of benefit to the entire campus.
Sequencing is available on a variety of instruments all based on the Illumina Sequencing by Synthesis technology, i.e. NGS Library Preparation or Single Cell Library Preparation for 10x Chromium NGS Sequencing. In addition to library preparation and sequencing we also help with planning sequencing experiments and offer advice on projects.
All researchers of the University of Heidelberg, DKFZ, EMBL and MPImF are welcome to request help or place orders for Next Generation Sequencing analyses. Projects funded through company funding unfortunately cannot be accepted.
Before sample submission please:
