Welcome to the DF/HCC DNA Resource Core

The Core's Message Board:

Dear Sanger sequencing users:

We are writing to let you know that the DF/HCC DNA Resource Core at Harvard Medical School will not reopen as lab activities resume. We cannot accept any new samples for Sanger sequencing and will permanently close our doors at the end of June.

We would like to thank you all for your use and support of the core over the past years and wish you success in your future research efforts. Below we provide important information about data access and alternative providers.

(1) Data Access:

The DNA-LIMS portal will be accessible until June 30th, 2021. Until that day, you will be able to log in to download your sequencing results and save them on your computer. Nevertheless, we urge you to download your data as soon as possible so that if there are any issues with your files, we can resolve those issues with you.


(2) Alternative Providers:

The following is a partial list of commercial vendors for Sanger sequencing, listed in alphabetical order. These vendors have provided competitive pricing for Harvard Medical School and affiliate hospitals. Some have special introductory offers available.
