The Department of Biological
Sciences DNA Core facility is fully equipped for DNA sequencing,
fragment analysis, and data analysis. The laboratory is a 1,000
sq ft facility housed in the Health and Life Sciences Building.
This service is provided for FIU Faculty and Students in Biology
and related disciplines, with sequencing or fragment analysis needs.
DNA sequencing and Fragment Analysis are carried out on three Applied
Biosystems 3100 Genetic Analyzers with Sequencing Analysis and GeneScan
As of August 1st, 2004, the CORE will start offering two levels of service
for DNA Sequencing. Level 1 will consist of a load-only service (user provides completed reactions).
Level 2 will provide a full sequencing service (user provides template and primers) for an additional fee.
