Q1. What is the cost of analysis?

Q2. What are the DNA requirements?

For GeoChip analysis we need 1 ug of DNA. If you do not have that much DNA we can do whole community DNA amplification to increase the amount of DNA available. For that ideally we would like 100 ng of DNA be we can work with less (2 ng).

For sequencing, we need 100 ng of DNA.

DNA quality for either assay should be 260/280 = 1.8; 260/230 =/>1.7.

Q3. What genes are covered on GeoChip?

Q4. What genes can be sequenced?

We currently offer sequencing for 16S, ITS2, and nifH genes. If you are interested in other genes, please contact us in details.

Q5. How should samples be shipped?

DNA can be sent on dry ice or the DNA can be dried down and shipped at ambient temperature. Please include your contact information and sample list inside the package containing your samples.
