Method Development

With a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment and expert scientific staff, DHMRI scientists work closely with our collaborators to develop novel methods, assays and protocols for sample extraction, library preparation or array technologies that help them get the most from their genetic data.

The DHMRI staff is currently working with experts from 10X Genomics to develop novel applications for the Chromium genomic and single cell library preparation platform. We are also working closely with researchers on the North Carolina Research Campus on new applications for existing methods.

Please contact the DHMRI genomics lab to discuss project design, method development or custom applications and technologies.


The David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI) Genomics Laboratory features a range of services and platforms that assist our collaborators with all phases of their projects from DNA or RNA extraction to library preparation and next generation sequencing. Our Genomics Laboratory also provides microarray and quantitative PCR platforms. Our scientists’ expertise allows them to develop novel methods, assays and protocols that give our collaborators custom applications and technologies.  All of the work conducted in the Genomics Laboratory is supported by state-of-the art computational and bioinformatics resources that help our collaborators get the most from their genetic data.

Collaborators also benefit from the availability of complementary services provided by DHMRI laboratories that specialize in metabolomics, proteomics, NMR, microscopy and targeted biochemistry.
