What is a Dovetail Service Project?

It is a good time to consider getting a Dovetail service project when…

1. The sample is ready, but you don’t seem to be able to get to it.  

2. You are uncertain of how to approach the experiment and are looking for help from an expert.  

3. It’s not worth your time to get a new technology up and running in your lab and would prefer to outsource. 

Whatever the reason, the Dovetail Services team is available to help your lab meet the needs of your research. Our dedicated team of scientists, experts in proximity ligation technology, offer a variety of Hi-C based services designed to meet the needs of scientists focused on genome assembly, epigenetics and human disease research.
