Expert Q&A: Smithsonian Scientists on Evaluating DNA Quality

Posted February 1, 2018 - 1:58pm

With the rapid adoption of long-read sequencing and other technologies that require high molecular weight DNA input, there is rising demand for high-quality samples from biorepositories around the world. To accommodate this, scientists at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, developed and published a rapid, inexpensive method for quantifying DNA quality. We spoke with co-authors Jonathan Coddington and Daniel Mulcahy to learn more about this new technique.
