December 11, 2020 - Extension of the high-throughput sequencing initiative. Senate decides to continue the network for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and thus further options for applying for sequencing costs in projects. The Senate of the German Research Foundation (DFG) decided in its meeting on December 10, 2020, which was held as a video conference due to the coronavirus pandemic, to extend the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) initiative until 2023. In March 2018, four competence centers were set up in the network and a total of 93 projects were subsequently funded in the tendering rounds for “sequencing costs in projects”.
