New technology at the center - Bionano

Bionano as a new complementary technology added to the Genome Centers technological portfolio

The Saphyr system from Bionano is up and running since December 2018. It allows the generation of optical maps for high quality genome assemblies and the sensitive and specific detection of structural variants in genomes. 
This technology was possible due to the DFG funded NGS-competence center initiative.
