DNA Services Core May Template Quality Challenge winner

Each month, the DNA Services Core Facility analyzes the DNA sequencing metadata (read length, quality scores, etc) and gives a $54 worth of sequencing credit to the “winner” of the Template Quality Challenge.

In May, DNA Services sequenced ~2500 DNA samples, large and small. Of the former, ~70% produced contiguous read lengths of 800 bases or more. The month’s winner is Ronn Leon of the Fleming lab (Bone Marrow Transplant) for “Best DNA sequencing sample” with a contiguous read length of 1050 and 967 high quality base-calls. Congratulations Ronn!
