Ancient DNA clean lab:
  • ~250 m2
  • Independent air condition and UV-water system
  • Three independent areas (humans, pathogens, animals/plants), each with several small rooms to separate analytical steps and increase throughput

Modern DNA lab:

  • Separate rooms for sample preparation, capture, quantification and sequencing
  • Capacities for long-term storage
  • 2 Illumina NextSeq500, one Illumina HiSeq4000, Linux Cluster for analyses
