Molecular Technology Service

The service provides routine sequencing of plasmids using an Applied Biosystems 3130xl (16 capillary) sequencer with a turnaround time of 24 hours. It also has the capacity to do next-generation sequencing with an Illumina NextSeq500 sequencer applying ChIP-seq and RNA-seq protocols. A Qiagen 8000 Robot is used for routine small and large-scale DNA purification from overnight bacterial cultures. Human cell line authentication using the Promega Geneprint 10 Kit is available as an internal service, as regular cell line authentication is important to confirm data integrity and is increasingly requested by journals.
