Next-Generation-Sequencing at the WZW

Many biologically, agronomically or biotechnologically important organisms are only insufficiently genetically characterized. Second Generation sequencing technologies now enable the efficient de novo analysis of genomes and transcriptomes as well as the re-sequencing of a large number of individuals. This opens new possibilities of a sustainable production and utilization of organisms, one of the leading missions at the TUM School of Life Sciences.

Concept of NGS@TUM

The application of this up-to-date technology is possible for both research groups of the School of Life Sciences and the entire TUM.

The advantages arising from the presence of these sequencing facilities at SoLS are:

  • High flexibility
  • Short queue times
  • Networking with other users, exchange of experiences
  • Low costs
  • Project consultancy (for research groups with no or only little experience in NGS; help with application for projects, calculation of costs, planning of projects)
