Mission Statement

The mission of the Molecular Biology Shared Resource Lab is to provide molecular biology products, services and support to Cancer Center investigators and the Dartmouth research community. It is our goal to offer the highest quality products and services possible in the most cost-effective and timely manner.

Current Services

Our primary services are DNA sequencing using the Applied Biosystems 3730 DNA analyzer, and Gene Expression assays using the NanoString nCounter Analysis System. In addition, we are responsible for the care and upkeep of a wide range of molecular biology related instruments available for use by individuals on a walk-up basis. This includes several Applied Biosystems qRT-PCR systems, DNA and RNA sample assessment systems, and different imaging instrumentation. The current equipment list can be found on our Shared Instruments page. All services are performed on a first-come-first-served basis unless otherwise noted in the individual service protocols. Charges for services will be made directly to investigator accounts.

The Core is fiscally managed by the Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) as a shared resource. In addition to the charge-back system for services, the budget for the GMBSR is currently underwritten by funds from the NCCC Core Grant.
