DNA Sequencing Facility

To our prospective clients - UW Biotechnology Center staff are currently working at home until further notice per University guidelines regarding COVID-19. We ask that you refrain from sending or dropping off samples until further notice. We apologize for the delay in service.
To our current clients - Thank you for your patience as we work to complete your projects. Expect delays of 2 or more weeks as we follow University guidelines regarding COVID-19.

The UWBC DNA Sequencing Facility was established to provide cost-effective, cutting edge sequencing resources available to the University of Wisconsin campus as well as colleagues at public and private institutions. We provide comprehensive, fee-for-service support for both Illumina Next Generation and Sanger sequencing projects, from project design and sample preparation through downstream analysis in conjunction with the UWBC Bioinformatics Resource Facility. In addition, we provide DNA extraction, SNP genotyping, and fragment analysis services, and can facilitate custom projects upon request. Our facility is committed to producing high-quality data, maintaining rapid turn-around times, and providing comprehensive support and resources.
