The DNA Technologies Core offers free consultations for genomics and transcriptomics research projects.

Easy consultation scheduling

  • For 10X single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-Seq) specific questions please try to attend the joint UCD and 10X Genomics office hours with Emily Kumimoto ( from UCD and your local 10X Sales Representative Paul Scott ( We have more information about all our single cell sequencing services (10X, Parse Bioscience, etc.) here:
  • For  Nanopore sequencing, Hi-C, and HMW-DNA preparation specific questions please contact Ruta Sahasrabudhe, PhD at


Lab-meetings with the DNA Tech Core staff

We are happy to join your lab-meetings to present topics of interest and discuss the latest technologies and project designs.

Bioinformatics & Statistics:

For many projects, we suggest to include staff from the neighboring Bioinformatics Core into the discussion. This allows us to consider statistical as well as downstream data analysis implications.
