The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) in a third round invites to the submission of scientific projects, in which sequencing will be carried out at the DFG funded competence centres for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) at the Universities Bonn/Köln/Düsseldorf, Dresden, Kiel, and Tübingen. Again, in this call it is planned to fund scientific projects with a medium sized demand (€100,000 to €1 million) of sequencing costs. The submission of a letter of intent is due 14 January 2020. Applications must be submitted to the DFG no later than the 9 June 2020. For more information see here.

The Cologne Center for Genomics has been selected as the major production site of the newly founded West German Genome Center. Through the accompanying funding provided by the DFG, the CCG will achieve a superior level of capacity, throughput and cost effectiveness in next generation sequencing (NGS).
