Genetic Anthropology Lab at UCSD
The genetic anthropology lab includes general genetic anthropology lab equipment, for the purpose of extracting, amplifying, and sequencing DNA to answer questions of anthropological interest. The lab also contains a Pyromark Q24 and all accessory equipment for the primary purpose of assaying DNA methylation levels. Pyrosequencing is a technique which enables sensitive quantification of methylation status at individual nucleotides, though the technique can also be used for other purposes, eg. genotyping, obtaining ploidy levels, and mixed genotypes in heterogeneous samples (e.g. tumor and normal cells).
