Sequencing data

The Ohio State University Plant Microbe Genomics Facility, established in 2000, is a center providing DNA sequencing products and services to researchers conducting molecular-based studies and genetics. The facility serves Ohio State and researchers throughout the world by providing resources to study genomes from DNA sequence to protein activities. 

At a Glance

The Plant-Microbe Genomics Facility studies genomes from DNA sequence to protein expression using:

  • DNA sequencing
  • Real-time PCR
  • Genotyping
  • Promoter Characterization
  • Biomolecular Interaction
  • Robotics, Liquid Handling 

The facility can study any organism’s DNA, RNA or protein.

Its fee-for-service supports the work of four full time staff and the purchase of instrumentation

Experts in the Field

PMG is the preferred sequencing facility around the globe because of its ability to access and leverage multidisciplinary expertise from the fields of the arts and sciences, medicine, dentistry, human development and nutrition, consumer sciences, food, agriculture, and environmental sciences and because of its ability to create new uses for equipment that goes beyond technology’s original use. If researchers are conducting molecular-based studies, they rely on PMGF to deliver outstanding computer science expertise.
