DNA Services Core: Sequencing, AFLP and Oligo Synthesis

The DNA Services Core provides automated fluorescent "long read" capillary DNA sequence analysis and solid-phase oligonucleotide synthesis.


The DNA Services Core is a unit of the Integrated Genomics Laboratory.

We are located in RJH 5330.  Three "after hours" drop-off refrigerators are available for weekend and evening workaholics.

We perform long-read (Sanger) DNA sequencing and fragment length analysis, aka genotyping. And we negotiated good prices from outside service providers for custom oligonucleotides.

DNA sequencing & fragment analysis are accomplished with our state-of-the-art, Applied Biosystems 3730xl, 48 capillary fluorescence instrument. 

Several levels of service are available to match your needs and finances. Submit an on-line work-request.

We provide oligo design assistance and trouble-shooting of applications using oligonucleotides. We act as a store front for several synthesis sources. By pooling our orders we can get the best prices and services. Use the on-line workrequest for small orders. Batch orders of small scale oligo synthesis can be as low as 10¢ per base. Discounts on other products too. Check the Fees page for the new prices.

Recent Changes to the DNA Services Core

DNA Services is now a unit of the Integrated Genomics Laboratory under the direction of Dr. Chris Harrington.       Dr. Tom Keller has accepted a new position at OHSU.  Congratulations Tom!



As we attempt to break even as a University Shared Resource, we may need to change our fees so revenues are approximately equal to expenses. Check About/Fees for our current rates.
