DNA Technologies: Prices

The Genome Center Cores provide services at three recharge rate scales. The University of California rate scale (UC rates) do apply to all projects paid through UC-system accounts. Non-profit/academic rates do apply to all other non-profit research including government projects. The industry rates apply to all projects paid from for-profit businesses or institutions.
