CMS :: Core Facilities :: DNA Analysis

The Center for Marine Science (CMS) DNA Analysis Core Facility’s (DNA Core) mission is to provide UNCW with the state-of-the-art infrastructure and expertise needed to generate and analyze DNA data for research and education. It is the only DNA analysis facility in southeastern North Carolina. The DNA Core has been the catalyst for interactions between researchers representing various research programs during it 15+ years of operation by providing an efficient and cost effective means for the generation and analyses of DNA sequence, fragment and real-time PCR data. The ease of use, low run costs and reliability of the facility’s instruments have enhanced the productivity and expanded the research capabilities of a growing number of faculty and students at UNCW. The DNA Core is used extensively to train students through its use by UNCW and local community college classes, and it plays an essential role in many student research projects.
