DNA Sequencing Troubleshooting Seminars

  • Session 1: At the Cancer Center
    Come to the Moores Cancer Center, room 2007 at 1:30pm on Thursday February 17, 2011 and learn how to troubleshoot and interpret your DNA sequencing data. Learn how to identify potential issues at every step of the process, from PCR to PCR clean-up to sequencing reactions to sequencing clean-up to electrophoresis. And best of all: learn how to solve these issues and obtain better and faster results!
  • Session 2: On Main Campus
    Come to Skagg’s Pharmaceutical Sciences Building, room 1170 at 11:00 on Friday February 18, 2011 and learn how to troubleshoot and interpret your DNA sequencing data.
