Short description of shared resource

We are one of four DFG-funded Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) centres with the mission to strengthen the biological/medical infrastructure in Germany. Our sequencing services comprise short and long read sequencing technologies as well as bioinformatics support. We offer Illumina sequencing in different throughputs and read lengths on two NovaSeq6000, one HiSeq4000, one NextSeq500 and two MiSeqs. Long read sequencing can be done on the Pacific Biosciences Sequel system. We offer a broad range of methods for RNA e.g. RNAseq, Single Cell transcriptomics or isoform sequencing as well as DNA e.g. whole genome sequencing, amplicon sequencing or exome sequencing. We are closely associated with the Institute for Clinical Molecular Biology of the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel and the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein and are part of the de.Nbi (German Network for Bioinformatic Infrastructure).

The CCGA offers Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) services within scientific collaborations. Services include project planning and choice of suitable methods, quality control of DNA and RNA, performing high-throughput sequencing as well as bioinformatic support.
