lineaObjetives
The main role of the Automatic Sequencing Laboratoryis to provide support for medical research and clinical routine. The goal is to increase the volume and quality of scientific results in a number of research and clinical groups inside our both Institute and elsewhere.
Our laboratory is located inside a renowned hospital. This allows for frequent interactions with the hospital’s various research groups, and thus allows for the laboratory members to stay up to date on state of-theart techniques in genetics. Nowadays, the Sanger sequencing method is regarded it as the gold standard for validation of Next- Generation Sequencing variants.
In order to achieve the goals stated above, our laboratory owns the necessary equipment and infrastructure for performing tasks such as conventional sequencing (Sanger method), marker DNA genotyping, and other molecular biology techniques based on capillary electrophoresis. The equipment can use up to five simultaneous colours on the same sample when it migrates into the genetic analysers. Therefore, we are able to detect more than 30 polymorphic markers per sample.
In addition, the laboratory equipment allows us to carry out extractions of DNA and RNA.
The laboratory is regularly involved in quality control audits on the Sanger sequencing and genotyping, as well as result homologation. Such audits are performed at both national and international levels (e.g., EMQN).
