Below are five simple steps to help you start and achieve the best possible sequencing results. Please read through all of the information provided. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
What to do if this is your first time Sequencing with us:
Step 1: Register Primary Investigator
Step 2: Create a user account
Now that you have registered your Principal Investigator and read the pertinent information, please register yourself as a user.
Step 3: Prepare samples for sequencing
Step 4: Submit order online
Complete the online order form. Check the pickup option on your order form if you wish to have your samples picked up. Pickup is offered free of charge to all labs on the main UCSD campus, and to any lab that has access to the Hillcrest or SIO shuttle routes. For Hillcrest and SIO labs, samples are picked up from respective main campus shuttle stops from 11am to 12pm. Pickup is not offered to off-campus labs.
Step 5: Wait for pickup or drop off samples

The account information for your data access will be sent to you via email after the first requisition. Use the information in the email to login and retrieve your data from our dnaLIMS server. If you are having trouble navigating dnaLIMS, additional information is available.
Step 7: Acknowledge the DNA Sequencing Shared Resource in your published paper.
In the event that your sequencing data is published, please include the following acknowledgement in your paper:
- DNA sequencing was performed by the DNA Sequencing Shared Resource, UCSD
Cancer Center, which is funded in part by NCI Cancer Center Support Grant # 2 P30 CA023100-23.
Such acknowledgement in your publication is very important for continuing NCI support of this shared resource.
