Core facility (CF)

Short Description

The goal of our Core Facility is to provide cutting edge next generation DNA sequencing technology to its users. Currently, sequencing is performed on Illumina and PacBio platforms.

Advice and guidance of sequencing projects are offered.

Depending on the required application, library preparation can either be performed by the users or by the NGS team. Multiplexed, barcoded samples can be used to fully exploit the sequencing capacity of the systems.

Base calling and primary analysis is standardly applied to the sequence reads resulting in bam/fastq files and quality information.

Our Core Facility team set up a selection of bioinformatics tools in order to assist you in further data analysis. Additionally, to these programs we offer the use of a local Galaxy installation.
