The first publication from the 1st DFG NGS call is out!

Erger, F., Nörling, D., Borchert, D. et al. cfNOMe — A single assay for comprehensive epigenetic analyses of cell-free DNA. Genome Med 12, 54 (2020).

cfNOMe is a two-in-one method of measuring cell-free DNA cytosine methylation and nucleosome occupancy in a single assay using non-disruptive enzymatic cytosine conversion and a custom bioinformatics pipeline.
This in-house developed NGS method as a part of a 1st call project has the potential to advance biomarker discovery and diagnostic usage in any diseases with acute or chronic tissue injury.

Congratulations to all involved!
