DF/HCC DNA Resource Core
The DF/HCC DNA Resource Core was established in the spring of 1999 to meet a growing need for DNA sequencing services at a cost that is affordable for academic labs. The services that we offer to users within the Dana Farber Harvard Cancer Center and the broader scientific community include DNA sequencing for large- and small-scale projects and plasmid distribution. Our highest priorities are quality assurance, user support and timely request fulfillment.
Single Cell Core at HMS
This Core supports single cell sequencing and provides resources for sequencing the transcriptomes individual cells and provides scientific advising for optimal experimental design. The Core is partnering with the Harvard Chan Bioinformatics Core to offer support from experimental design through to data analysis.
