The DNA Shared Resource Facility is dedicated to helping researchers manipulate and characterize DNA and RNA preparations. The lab offers spectroscopic nucleic acid determinations in a single sample or 96 well format. In addition, instrumentation is available for use in PCR and Real Time PCR. Other 96 well format measurements for fluorescence or luminescence may be done with the 96 well plate reader. Ancillary equipment, such as vacuum dryers and growth chambers, are available for researcher use.
