Nucleic Acid Core

 

The nucleic acid extraction core is part of the Biopathology Center and supports clinical trials that require high quality nucleic acids.  A variety of methods are available for nucleic acid extraction from blood, tissue, or buccal swabs.  Quality control to test the integrity of the DNA or RNA is performed at the investigator’s request.  Each trial or project is managed separately after discussion with the investigator regarding optimal collection methods and desired downstream applications.

 

The laboratory is responsible for DNA and RNA extraction from tissue, bone marrow, and blood in support of COG and GOG protocols. The laboratory serves as a repository for distribution of nucleic acids to investigators for further research.
