Infrastructure vital to discovery
Core facilities and service laboratories serve essential functions at South Dakota State University.
Our core facilities support faculty research by providing tools and equipment that can be utilized by multiple users. Meanwhile, the service laboratories offer assistance to the public. For example, someone can bring in seed samples and have it analyzed for a fee at our Seed Testing Laboratory.
These laboratories and facilities also work as learning centers for our students in both high-tech developments and research efforts.
SDSU’s infrastructure continues to evolve as we provide the means to better assist our faculty researchers and scientists, who continue to make groundbreaking breakthroughs in their disciplines.
We provide DNA/RNA sequencing, library prep, extractions, PCRs, QC, and bioinformatic analysis services using Illumina platforms and automation, and can collaborate on experimental design.
