DFG NGS Funding

Funded by the DFG, the NGS Competence Center Tübingen (NCCT) and three other centres answer the increased needs for NGS facilities for research projects in Germany. At the same time, the DFG regularly launches calls for Grants that fund promising NGS-based projects. The NCCT for DFG-funded NGS projects is an association of the sequencing facility (NCCT) of the University Clinic of Tübingen, the Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene, and the Center for Quantitative Biology (QBiC) of the University of Tübingen. Together, we will find the best strategy for your project. If you need further information how to apply for the DFG grants, please contact:

Although projects from the DFG NGS Funding will be processed in the same pipelines, some procedures and sample registration are slightly different. Please find more information from the DFG if you are interested in the DFG-funded NGS-Programme: DFG
