How it started and what we aim for.
The NGS Competence Center Tübingen (NCCT) was established in early 2018 with the help of DFG (German Research Foundation) funding. Together with three other national centers, we aim at strengthening the use of high-throughput sequencing methods in Germany.

The center offers automated high-throughput services and a rich portfolio of sequencing solutions using the latest Illumina, Pacific Biosciences (PACBIO) and Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) sequencers. As part of the Quantitative Biology Center (QBiC), NCCT builds on established core facility structures and integrates with the existing infrastructure for data management and bioinformatics support.
