Following sample disruption and DNA extraction, Quality Control (QC) is a vital element of DNA analysis procedure. Here you can explore some key resources on QC.

Remarkable and inspiring DNA stories

DNA Day (April 25) commemorates the discovery and understanding of DNA and the scientific advances that understanding has made possible. We remember the time in 1953 when James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and colleagues published papers on the structure of DNA in the journal, Nature.

For DNA Day 2020, we’ve gathered some remarkable stories about DNA research to share with you from all areas of science. Most of these are discoveries have been made very recently.
