Competence fields

Methodological competence

In addition to all standard molecular techniques, we perform:

  • Next-Generation-Sequencing (Illumina MiSeq, NextSeq)
  • Genome annotation
  • Mitogenome analysis
  • Methylome analysis (MeDIP, RRBS)
  • Transcriptome analysis
  • Q-PCR
  • Analysis of archival and ancient DNA
  • Analysis of DNA from non-invasively collected sample material (e.g. hair, feces, saliva)

Extension of Competence

For sequencing projects that exceed our own capacities (both equipment-wise and in terms of downstream bioinformatics) we work closely together with the Max-Delbrück Center and the  Berlin Center for Genomics in Biodiversity Research(BeGenDiv). As one of its founding institutions the IZW cooperates with the BeGenDiv specifically in questions of its core research such as the research on the evolution of adaptations and the mechanisms that lead to their manifestation in the phenotype.
