DNA and RNA Extraction

Nucleic Acid Extraction Services

We are now collaborating with the Real-time PCR and Research Diagnostics Core (also known as the Taqman Core), which allows us to accept tissue and blood samples for sequencing and genotyping analyses.  The Taqman Core manager Samantha Barnum and her team have many years of experience in the extraction of sequencing-worthy DNA and total RNA samples from both animal and plant tissues.  Please note that for sequencing purposes the ‘Qiagen Nucleic Acid Extraction’ option should be selected – this protocol generates the highest quality material for Illumina sequencing for both DNA and RNA.  The same protocol may also be suitable for PacBio sequencing, but is only recommended for bacterial samples.

We encourage scheduling your DNA and RNA extraction services directly with the Taqman Core. However, non-UCD customers may find it easier to deal with a single core, and in these situations we can arrange the nucleic acid extraction service through the DNA Technologies Core.
