Helix Biological Laboratory has become an innovator in applying molecular genetic technologies toward a variety of genetic studies of plant, animal and microbial organisms found in terrestrial, fresh water and marine environments.
Through the experience and expertise of our laboratory staff, we provide services that include the extraction of DNA from biological samples, along with PCR amplification and DNA sequencing of specific nuclear and mitochondrial marker genes that generate data that are used for the following:
Population Genetic Studies
Evolutionary Biology Studies
Molecular Phylogenetic Reconstructions
Ecological Genetic Studies
Environmental (eDNA) Analysis
Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) Analysis
Our scientists are experienced with oligonucleotide primer design, editing and aligning raw DNA sequences, phylogenetic reconstruction and molecular data analysis. Helix Biological Laboratory does not automate any portion of our analytical methods.
The molecular genetics services offered by Helix Biological Laboratory are available to the general public, academics, university affiliates, researchers, law enforcement agencies, attorneys, and other laboratories.
