THE PROCESS
AT THE HIRAM GENOMICS STORE
Conquering the genomics universe one student at a time.


METAGENOMIC DNA ANALYSIS

  • The Hiram Genomics Store offers a wide array of PCR primers and reagents that allow your students to detect the presence of specific organisms or taxa in any metagenomic sample. Please use the links under the process button to view diagrams that describe the Metagenomic DNA Analysis Process and Services that we provide.

HOW THE PROCESS WORKS

  • You isolate a DNA sample from a surrounding environment or use one of our pre-isolated in-house DNA samples. This will be the sample used to find the specific DNA for which you are testing.
  • Use a PCR thermocycler to replicate DNA. If you don't have access to a PCR thermocycler, check out the Services page to see how we can help you.
  • Analyze the products through Gel Electrophoresis to find the presence or absence of the specific DNA. If you don't have a Gel Electrophoresis box, click here to view Services that we provide.
