CBFG provides students with hands-on training so that they can conduct their own research using instruments and software that undergraduates at larger universities would rarely see, let alone be able to use.

Undergraduate (and high school) students can learn how to use some of the same high-tech equipment that is featured in popular TV programs, such as criminal investigation and medical dramas.

The CBFG is now accepting outside requests for analysis of DNA samples by Sanger sequencing and/or GeneMapper®. Please see our page on the Science Exchange website.
