The DNA Sequencing Center (DNASC) at Brigham Young University was established to help researchers and students process DNA samples efficiently and economically. By centralizing equipment and expertise, we have dramatically reduced the overall expense to the University and to individual labs needing DNA sequence, while increasing the efficiency and quality of the data generated. The DNASC is committed to serving the BYU research community by providing advanced and efficient services for DNA sequence and DNA fragment acquisition and analysis.

Hours of Operation

 

8:30am - 5:00pm     Monday - Friday (except for BYU holidays)

 

Some of the services provided by the DNASC include:

  • Custom DNA Sequencing (3730xl for dideoxy sequencing chemistry, or 454 Life Sciences Genome Sequencer FLX for large scale sequencing projects)
  • DNA Fragment Analysis
  • Sequencing and PCR troubleshooting and training
  • SNP analysis
  • Primer walking
  • Contig assembly and editing
  • Please contact Edward Wilcox at the DNASC well before planning or preparing samples to run on the 454 Life Sciences GS FLX+

 

The DNASC is supported by Brigham Young University through the Department of Biology under the direction of Dr. Michael F. Whiting and managed by Dr. Edward WIlcox.
