DNA Sciences

The DNA Sciences Core provides expertise to investigators for experimental design, sample preparation, protocol optimization and execution and data analysis.  Major  services are DNA sequencing and genomic analyses carried out via deep sequencing (“next-gen”) and Sanger sequencing to suit a wide range of research projects requiring nucleic acid sequences.  The core also provides gene expression and genotyping on microarray and real time PCR platforms, including digital PCR. The DNA Sciences Core works synergistically with the Biorepository and Tissue Research Facility and Bioinformatics Core by sharing resources and complementary expertise in bioinformatics.

The core is exploring addition of Oxford MinION nanopore sequencing technology and invites interested investigators to contact the core.

DNA Science is located in Jordan Hall, rooms 1076 (DNA sequencing sample drop off, RT-PCR), 1044 (Yongde Bao),  1071 (gene chip arrays).
