– DNA Sequencing Laboratory
UMBI’s DNA sequencing laboratory is a well equipped sequencing DNA laboratory where it houses two capillary electrophoresis systems and one next generation sequencing machine. These capillary electrophoresis systems are easy to use, supports a wide range of application as well as highly throughput systems. Advancement in the DNA sequencing technology leads to the development of next generation sequencing (NGS). Recently, UMBI has purchased a NGS system, SOLiD4 which enables researchers to sequences the whole genome and perform other applications.
