DNA Sequencing Center


The DNA Sequencing Center (DNASC) at Brigham Young University was established to help researchers and students process DNA samples efficiently and economically. By centralizing equipment and expertise, we have dramatically reduced the overall expense to the University and to individual labs needing DNA sequence, while increasing the efficiency and quality of the data generated. The DNASC is committed to serving the BYU research community by providing advanced and efficient services for DNA sequence and DNA fragment acquisition and analysis.

To request services, BYU staff and students can login or create an account. External users can email
