About Us

The Sequencing Centre was established in 1999 from funding provided by the Wellcome Trust after a successful granting submission from the Monash Institute of Medical Research and Prince Henry’s Institute. In 2005 the Gandel Charitable Trust generously provided funds enabling purchase of the current Applied Biosystems 16 Capillary 3130xl Genetic Analyzer used within the facility. Operating as not-for-profit, sequencing services include sequencing and electrophoresis, purification and electrophoresis and capillary electrophoresis. Complementary genomic services also include fragment analysis, gene expression dHPLC, and DNA, RNA & protein analysis.
