Please make sure that you have read the information on our DNA Prep/Concentration page where you will find all instructions for sample preparation for the UCDNA Sequencing Lab. Your next step will be to access our online submission system using the "submit order" button below. The instructions for filling out the Excel spreadsheet are embedded in the form. Just move your cursor over the red triangles and the instructions will pop up for you to see. Please include any special instructions at the bottom of your request form.
Once you have submitted your order, bring your DNA to one of our 3 sample drop-off locations listed below. Please be advised that unless you have made prior arrangements with us you will not get your DNA and primers back. See note below on turn-around times and drop-off locations.
NEW!! Now offering 3 sample pick-up locations for your convenience!
*Please be advised that the earlier in the morning you drop your samples off, the faster you will receive your results. Also note that samples dropped off at VM3B by mid-morning should arrive at the UCDNA Sequencing Faciliity in time to be processed that day. Orders dropped off at VM3B after mid-morning and samples dropped off at UCDMC will typically have a 1-day delay.
We would like to thank Vet Med Central Services (VMCS) on the main UC Davis campus for their help in making these pick-up services possible! They offer daily delivery of supplies to labs on the main campus and to UCDMC so contact them for all of your research needs.
You should receive results within 1-2 business days, depending on our current turn-around time.We will e-mail the results to you when they are finished unless you have provided a disk in which case we will send you an e-mail when you can come pick it up. Larger orders and BAC DNA may take longer.
If you have any problems uploading your online form or have made a mistake on your order form, you do not need to submit a new order. Just e-mail a copy of the corrected form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and happy sequencing!
