DNA Sequencing Services Information

 

DNA sequencing services determine the ordering of the nucleotide bases adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine in submitted DNA. There are multiple techniques for DNA sequencing such as the Sanger (dideoxy) method, the Maxam-Gilbert (chemical cleavage) method, pyrosequencing, shotgun DNA sequencing, and Illumina sequencing.DNA sequencing services

  

DNA sequencing services help customers solve various sequencing related problems such as hairpin, multiple RNAi loops, and uneven base distributions.

 

Types

 

Pre-mixed—For sequencing plasmids or purified PCR products.

 

Pre-defined—Select this service if you prefer to submit template and primer in separate tube.

 

Custom—This is a full-service option for sequencing samples with unknown concentration. Sample types include plasmids, PCR products (purified and unpurified), bacterial clones (colonies and glycerol), phage with circular genome (supernatant and plaque), and BAC DNA.

 

Features

 

Features to consider for choosing DNA sequencing services include:

 

  • Turnaround time to receive results
  • Total cost of service
  • Quality of sequence data
  • Flexible sample submission
  • Free universal primers
  • Ease-of-use ordering and quotation.
