Our facilities include a laboratory dedicated to low quality DNA sample types including fecal, hair and aquatic environmental DNA samples. High quality DNA sample types, like blood and plant or animal tissue, are processed in another laboratory space that is separated from the low quality DNA lab. Our capillary electrophoresis facility can process PCR products for both fragment analysis and sequencing applications. Finally, we have a fully equipped computer lab for data analysis.
