Just because it isn’t listed on our website does not mean we we won’t try it. We have the Oxford Nanopore minION. We’ll make the libraries and send to a PacBio for ultra long reads. And you cannot come up with a project that we have not tried on the Illumina platforms.  New Bioinformatics pipelines, Chip-Seq, RNA-Seq, expression levels from excruciatingly small amounts of starting material including single cell. Stop on by and tell us what you want to try out.

Monday, September 4, 2017: We had a building water pipe burst in the lab this weekend. An intern spotted the damage at 10 PM on Friday. A few instruments have shorted out but everything that was killed had backups and are already up and running. Library preps might be stalled out for at least five days while we insure that the lab is dry to the core and we can restart production.  No big deal.

Monday, July 31: Tomorrow is August. Keep an eye out for our August Specials!

Wednesday, July 26: Look outside, summertime! We are still running shifts 24/7 but we may not answer your email immediately.
