NCCT (NGS Competence Center Tübingen)

The NCCT (NGS Competence Center Tübingen) was conceptualized in 2017 and approved in early 2018, together with four other national centers by the DFG (German Research Foundation) to strengthen the use of high-throughput sequencing methods in Germany. The center offers service on the latest Illumina Next Generation Sequencer NovaSeq6000, Oxford Nanopore Technologies Sequencer PromethION and Pacific Bioscience Sequel.


The aim of the Center is...

...to become a central one stop station providing latest sequencing technologies:

  • Long reads applications for genome assembly or transcriptome analysis
  • Single cell analysis platform and applications
  • Automation of workflow
  • Systematic bioinformatics solutions


Three Institutes in Tübingen contribute to the achievement

Institute of Medical Genetics and Medical Genomics

(Prof. Olaf Riess, coordinator)


Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene

(Prof. Ingo Autenrieth)


Quantitative Biology Center

(Prof. Oliver Kohlbacher)


...being integrated in a network of centers selected by the DFG: the West German Genome Center, DRESDEN-concept Genome Center and the Competence Centre for Genomic Analysis Kiel.

We furthermore established a close long-term collaboration with the sequencing expertise of the MPI for Developmental Biology (Prof. Weigel).
