*Calling all operators of AUTOMATED DNA sequencers!*

The DNA Sequencing Research Group (DSRG) of the Association of 
Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) invites all laboratories 
involved in DNA sequencing applications to participate in an on-line survey.

The goal of this survey is to capture the current profile of DNA 
sequencing facilities in both the academic and commercial sectors, from 
individual research labs to structured core facilities and genome 
centers. Through comparison to previous studies, the impact of current 
instrumentation on sample throughput, data turnaround time, staffing and 
pricing will be assessed. We anticipate that these results will serve as 
a benchmark against which institutions can compare their respective core 
facilities.

The survey is available until December 31^st , 2005 at: 
http://www.cores.utah.edu/surveyor/index.php?sid=1

Preliminary results will be presented at the annual ABRF meeting in Long 
Beach, CA, in February, 2006. The complete study will be published in 
the Journal of Biomolecular Techniques (JBT) later in the year.

The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities is an international 
society dedicated to advancing core and research biotechnology 
laboratories through research, communication, and education. Visit our 
website at www.abrf.org <http://www.abrf.org/> to discover how 
membership can benefit you.

Thank you for your support and participation.
