Microbial genome research has been one of the most rapidly evolving fields
in molecular life sciences
with enormous social and economical impact e.g. in the fields of health care, biotechnology, and synthetic biology.
in microbial genome research require cost-intensive state-of-the-art equipment
as well as highly-educated personnel
. Within the Norddeutsches Zentrum für Mikrobielle Genomforschung
(NZMG) six well-established
research institutions from Northern Germany join their research infrastructure and know-how. Therefore, the NZMG provides all of the tools of modern functional genomics and proteomics
combined with in-depth bioinformatics
and systems biology
analysis for scientific co-operations
in Northern Germany and beyond.
