Welcome at the Max-Planck-Genome-Centre Cologne

The Max Planck-Genome-centre Cologne (MP-GC) is a core facility for Max Planck Institutes performing next generation sequencing (NGS). The MP-GC is open for all scientists of the Max Planck Society and provides sequencing service for different NGS technologies.

A major distinguishing feature of the MP-GC from commercial sequencing providers is the flexible planning and processing of sequencing projects according to the scientist’s specific requirements. Our services cover sample and library quality checks, material clean-up, library preparation, sequencing and data analysis of individual NGS sequencing projects. Furthermore, we perform development of non-standard methods and work with all kinds of critical and low scale input material. Due to individual barcoding of each sample, we are able to offer very flexible sequencing conditions
