Projects we are involved with

A number of large projects are committing to working with the nf-core community for data analysis pipelines. You can see an overview of these below.

German National Sequencing Initiative

The German Funding Body (DFG) has approved funding to establish 4 national high-throughput sequencing centers in Germany. The project will rely on nf-core pipelines for analyzing large-scale genomics data. Contributors from the Kiel, Tübingen and Dresden sites are already actively contributing to nf-core, and the other sequencing center in Cologne/Bonn (West German Genome Center) has committed to joining and contributing its expertise.


EASI-Genomics provides easy and seamless access to cutting-edge DNA sequencing technologies to researchers from academia and industry, within a framework that ensures compliance with ethical and legal requirements, as well as FAIR and secure data management. EASI-Genomics aims to build a community of practice, which leverages advanced sequencing technologies beyond country and sector borders to tackle global challenges in science. It organizes competitive calls to get fully-funded access to state-of-the-art facilities and services, including integrative data analysis.

EASI-Genomics partners are committed to working within community best-practices for the bioinformatics processing of the data that they produce. To this end they will use nf-core pipelines to process data and contribute new developments and pipelines within the nf-core framework.


BovReg is a H2020 project to form a consortium that will provide a comprehensive map of functionally active genomic features in cattle and how their (epi)genetic variation in beef and dairy breeds translates into phenotypes.
