Sample Submission

Getting started
As sequencing projects are getting underway, we encourage UC Davis researchers to work closely with the associate director for BGI@UC Davis to ensure the best possible service and results.

Overview of process
Once the project has been defined and the scope is understood and summarized in writing, please direct submission to BGI@UC Davis or via the DNA Technologies Core of the Genome Center.  Note that submitting through the DNA Technologies Core may be more appropriate for small projects or investigators new to sequencing projects.
