Search the collection

The Core's Message Board:

Human Cell Line Authentication: We are excited to announce a new collaboration with the Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory (MDL) at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. You can now use our drop-off locations to submit human cell genomic DNA for cell line authentication by the MDL. Print and digital order forms with MDL are required. To learn how to request this service, please contact us at

If this is your first time visiting the DNA Resource Core at Harvard Medical School:

  • To submit samples for Sanger sequencing, you will need to create an account.
  • If you begin creating a sequencing account and find that your PI is not already in our database please contact Li Chan to have your PI listed.
  • Visit our sample preparation guideline for detailed informaiton on sample preparation and submission.
  • If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
