MicroBiome Analysis Center

The MicroBiome Analysis Center has a separate PCR room with 10 PCR machines, an ABI 3130xl sequencer, a Life Technology RT PCR instrument, an Ion Torrent PGM sequencer (4 million reads/run), an Ion Torrent S5 (80 million reads/run), and high-end computational facilities. The computational facilities include 10 iMac computers, a 48 processor HP workstation, two development HP servers, and access to a 640 node SGI cluster. A wide array of bioinformatics software is accessible through networked computers within the DNA research labs.
