MDACC Science Park Molecular Biology Core

Overview of Services

The Molecular Biology Core Facility at Science Park provides investigators access to sophisticated and state-of-the-art molecular techniques, services and instrumentation. Because the Department of Molecular Carcinogenesis is multidisciplinary in nature, the level of support needed by different investigators varies widely. Consequently, the level of access offered by the core varies from consultation and advice on specific aspects of projects, through training on particular techniques and/or instruments available in the core, to complete molecular analyses from sample preparation to final data analysis.
