Core Facility Molecular Biology

The Core Facility Molecular Biology offers service and consultation on RNA and DNA detection. With the Illumina MiSeq next generation sequencing technology, we focus on microbiome studies and support our users in metagenome analysis based on 16S amplicon or whole genome sequencing (small genomes). For whole transcript gene expression analysis or microRNA expression studies, the Affymetrix platform yields highly reproducible results. To verify array results, to focus on targeted pathways or to seek low-abundance transcripts, the digital Nanostring nCounter® analysis system - counting RNA and DNA molecules – is available.
