The DNA sequencing facility has two automated DNA sequencers: an eight capillary Genetic Analyzer 3500 and a 48 capillary Genetic Analyzer 3730 from Applied Biosystems/ Thermofisher, both of which are used for DNA sequencing and fragment analysis. The average turnaround time to give out data is one working day after receiving samples. During the year 2017, the facility carried out a total of 25,459 reactions of which 13,718 were for sequencing and 11,741 were for fragment analysis. The facility also provided demonstration of Sanger sequencing to students and other visitors.
