The Molecular Biology Core Facilities (MBCF) at Dana-Farber Cancer institute (DFCI) provide expertise and access to cutting-edge genomic and proteomic technologies in a shared use setting. Although these services are primarily focused on cancer and AIDS research, most services are broadly applicable to other areas of research. We are proud to highlight some of our new services here.
