Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS) is a high-throughput method for massive, parallel sequencing of millions of nucleotide fragments.
A NGS experiments needs a carefully evaluated study design, good quality source material (DNA or RNA), a so-called library preparation,
the sequencing run to generate big datasets and bioinformatic / statistician expertise to extract meaningful biological results from these data.
In our institute, we offer to do the library preparation process as well as the NGS sequencing on the basis of a scientific collaboration. Currently, the fleet of NGS sequencing devices in our institute comprises two Illumina NovaSeq 6000, two HiSeq 3000/4000, one NextSeq 500, three MiSeq systems and a PacBio Sequel II.
