Pricing information and sample submission

The Genomics Section provides services and instrumentation that enable DNA/RNA extraction and quality control, next generation sequencing, epigenetic profiling and microarray analysis on a whole-genome scale, from the level organisms to single cells. Emphasis is placed on providing Cancer Center investigators access to cutting edge technologies to generate high quality genomics data in this rapidly evolving and increasingly utilized field.
