On Thursday June 27th, 2019 at 5:00 AM (U.S. EST) Agilent Site Reliability Engineers will be working with our Network Service Provider to upgrade the API server for the North American instance. The entire process is expected to be 1 hour, and iLab customers using the API for any features may experience a decrease in performance during this time. More information can be found on the iLab Status Site. For any questions, please contact iLab Support at or by clicking on the 'Help' link at the top of your account page.

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.
