Abstract:

The funded project to establish an integrated DNA sequencing system for education and research at Virginia State University has beensuccessfully completed. A facility consisting of two next-generation DNA sequencers, which work in complement to each other, as well as aseries of instruments essential for DNA sample preparation and quality control, has been established in a dedicated laboratory at VirginiaState University. This facility is essential and has begun to be used for research on biofuel, microbiome and human health, andenvironmentally caused diseases that are being carried out at Virginia State University. The instruments are also being incorporated intocourses and research experience for students at Virginia State University to train the next-generation biotechnology and biomedical researchleaders.
