The Nucleic Acid Analysis Facility was established in 1997 by the initiative and direct effort of Dr. Eleanor Spicer, Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. Initially, the goal was to provide MUSC community with fast, high quality genetic analysis of the samples generated in both clinical and basic research. With the explosive development of the modern technologies of genetic analysis the Facility has also expanded its function to educating researchers regarding the capabilities of new technologies and training investigators in application of these technologies for the particular individual projects.
At present, the Nucleic Acid Analysis Facility is a university wide resource, serving more than 120 principal investigators from all departments of MUSC. It is supported by the Department of Biochemistry, University Research Council, and by the GCRC of the Medical University of South Carolina. The Facility is located in room #228, Basic Science Building. It is directed by Biochemistry faculty.
