Next Generation Sequencing

The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Core Unit is a joint operation of BCRT and BIH. NGS offers access to new sequencing technologies, which in addition to the research area itself are gaining increasing importance in the field of diagnostics. The necessary expertise and technical resources are made available through us. Furthermore gained data is analysed bioinformatically.
