Arrival of the MiSeq in the IIEG

Together with colleagues from the Institute of Anatomy, Neurogenetics, and Human Genetics, as well as the Clinic for Gynecology, Dermatology and Pediatrics, we are setting-up a "Next-Generation-Sequencing"-platform (NGS) at the University of L├╝beck.

In the last couple of months we have established a bioinformatic pipeline to analyse NGS data. The next step is now to establish the hardware to actual sequence patient´s DNA in a medium-throughput scale.

Yesterday, a Miseq sequencer (more information can be found here: Illumina Miseq) funded by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft), arrived at the IIEG. 

We are looking forward to analyze our first exome in a couple of weeks.
