Cancellation of Free Sequencing Service:
The Dolan DNA Learning Center (DNALC) will discontinue its sequencing service as of January 1, 2011.
Over the past 10 years our expenses for this service have grown substantially and we are no longer able to absorb this cost. At the same time, the cost of commercial sequencing has dropped substantially.
All samples submitted before January 1, 2011 will be sequenced for free. After that time, we have negotiated a reduced price of $3.00 per sample through a commercial sequencing company, Genewiz.
By the start of next year, sequencing through Genewiz (www.genewiz.com) will be as easy as through the DNALC. You will be able to create a DNALC-linked account on the GENEWIZ site that will entitle you to the sequence discount and make your data automatically available on the DNALC’s Bioservers (www.bioservers.org/). Details on how to submit samples will be posted on our website before the end of the year.
PLEASE NOTE: Users should not contact Genewiz directly with any questions at this time; instead please address all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This new arrangement includes a number of benefits:
We understand that for some institutions this new arrangement will create a financial burden that may make sequencing impossible with students. Therefore, we will be providing a limited amount of financial support to institutions that can document their need. Scholarship applications will be made available on Genetic Origins (www.geneticorigins.org) before the end of the year. Criteria for receiving this support will include:
