Data for samples dropped off before 8:30 AM at S534A Scaife Hall or received at 3343 Forbes Avenue (Room 303) before 9:00 AM are usually available the following day. Data for samples dropped off after the daily deadlines or at one of the courier sites should be available in 2 business days. Please note that courier service from the Hillman center to the laboratory at 3343 Forbes Avenue is provided by the Hillman Center and is not in anyway coordinated by the Genomics Research Core or its staff. Due to other responsibilities for the Hillman Center, the courier occasionally misses scheduled delivery days.

Due to extended sequencing cycle requirements, BAC samples will require an additional day for processing.

Plates for capillary runs are due at 3343 Forbes Avenue or S534A Scaife Hall by 3 PM for that day's run. If dropping plates at Scaife Hall please email with the subject line 'capillary run' by 2:30pm on the day you wish the plates to be picked up. If the instrument queue is full, labs are limited to 2 plates a day, remaining plates will be assigned to the next available run. Data from a day's run are available on the server the following day.

To inquire about the current queue, or if you have any other questions please contact the Genomics Research Core.
