G2L: Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)
Currently, NGS-sequencing in our lab comprises Illumina technology as well as pyrosequencing. Both technologies are applied on genomes, transcriptomes, metagenomes, and metatranscriptomes.
Amplicon sequencing (deep sequencing of microbial communities and functional genes)
Further Sequencing (custom) protocols on demand
|The mentioned technologies are available for internal and external partners. Pricing is available on request according to your project need.
Sequences are delivered via ftp or via Network Share (within the Institute of Microbiology and Genetics), respectively.
