People and techniques involved

The DeepSeqLab is run by David Ibberson, M. Sci., Claudia Loosli and Hannah Hänsisch, and is currently located in the BioQuant building, Im Neuenheimer Feld 267.

EMBL is our sequencing and knowledge partner.For sequencing instrumentation, please have a look at the EMBL Genomics Core Facilities GeneCore.

The facility houses a 10x Genomics Chromium and a Fluidign C1 for single cell analysis as well as a robust infrastructure for library preparation (Covaris, Bioanalyzer, Qubit).



The service offered by the facility is outlined below:

We prepare sequencing libraries for

  • RNA Seq

  • ChIP Seq

  • genomic DNA including exon capture

  • methyl DNA Seq

We provide sequencing analyses in single-read or paired-end mode, sequencing length depends on instrument type.

Users will be supported by Bioinformaticians in the CellNetworks MathClinic in project planning, advice on bioinformatic data analysis and suitable software solutions.


Who has access to the service?

The following clientele can enroll as user of the facility:

  • Members of Heidelberg University including the Medical Faculties Heidelberg and Mannheim

  • Cluster of Excellence CellNetworks

  • Graduate school HBIGS (Hartmut Hoffmann Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology)

  • HMLS (Heidelberg Molecular Life Sciences)
