The associate de.NBI partner at Kiel University is a joint effort by the Institute of Microbial Genomics and the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology. Our groups combine basic research with a range of state-of-the art bioinformatics applications and in-house developments. Through the de.NBI, we are happy to offer interested users the possibility to make use of our expertise in their projects.
A key focus in Kiel is on providing practical support for complex but routine bioinformatics projects in the wider field of genomics. In particular, users can collaborate with us in three key areas that reflect the different competences in our institutes – the design and analysis of genome-wide association studies (D. Ellinghaus), assembly and annotation of animal genomes (M. Höppner), and microbial phylogenetics and comparative genomics (T. Dagan). Our services include consultation and/or practical support to help you plan your project, define a realistic budget and time frame and execute it. Further we provide access to a range of infrastructures, including one of the largest academic Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and genotyping centers in Germany, specialized hardware for the assembly of large genomes but also detailed hands-on experience in a range of bioinformatics applications.
We are running state-of-the art tools and workflows for our three key areas genome-wide association studies, assembly and annotation of animal genomes, and microbial phylogenetics and comparative genomics.
