The DNA Core accommodates both single sample users and high-throughput projects. The facility utilizes a 3730xl 96-capillary DNA Analyzer with Applied Biosystems Big Dye Terminator cycle sequencing chemistry.
The 96-capillary instrument with robotic plate handler provides a high throughput capacity at minimal cost to investigators. Projects of varying size are accommodated.
Read lengths up to 1100 bases per reaction are routine, providing the template is of high quality. Turn around time for submissions is 24 hours.
