DNA Sequenceing Introduction

 DNA samples should be delivered to Rm401-5 before 9:30 every morning with a complete sample sheet. The DNA sequencing service will be provided at DNA Sequencing Core Facility of IBMS.

Submit sample


The quality of plasmid samples should be determined by 260/280 nm ratio. Generally the ratio should be approximately 1.8 for pure DNA.


DNA samples should be delivered to Rm401-5 before 9:30 AM


 Total volume of your sample should be 12 λ in a 0.2 ml PCR tube
※If using our primer ( M13 Forward, M13 Reverse,T7 Promoter, SP6 Promoter, T3 Promoter), the total volume of your sample will be 10 ul in a 0.2 ml PCR tube. Please indicate the primer on the back of the form.
