Next Generation Sequencing

Next generation sequencing technologies are currently revolutionizing the field of genomic research. They enable researchers to decode genomic sequences at an unprecedented depth and level of detail.

Keeping up to date with modern sequencing technologies, the CCG operates several next generation sequencers and maintains a fully equipped lab and staff able to perform a variety of next generation sequencing experiments – from sample preparation to data analysis. To streamline data analysis, the CCG leverages the performance of the high-performance computing systems of the Regional Computing Center Cologne (RRZK).

CCG’s next generation sequencing platform is open for research groups inside and outside the University of Cologne in the framework of collaborative research projects. In general, next generation sequencing projects at the CCG focus on medical genomics, but projects from other fields of research are welcome as well.
