Plant work is hard, but we make it look easy!
We can work with any organism, cell type, or tissue but working with plant tissues results in a number of unique challenges. Plants have cell walls, fibrous tissues, reactive compounds, and diverse secondary metabolites that can carry over from nucleic acid preparations and interfere with downstream processes. Isolating highly pure nucleic acids is vital for generating high quality NGS libraries.
Our founding team members are both trained as plant molecular biologists and working with difficult plant tissue is first nature for us.
