DNA Sequencer


DNA, the material that forms genes, carries the information of all functions of cells, tissues and organisms. This information is written as a four-letter code (ATGC). If we know the DNA sequence, we can know if a gene is correct and functional or if it has errors that can cause mutations. DNA sequencing and the detection of mutations is an innovative, cross-cutting tool that can be applied in several areas, such as the diagnosis of genetic diseases, the identification of fossil DNA, the control of food fraud, etc.

Genome sequencing technicians design and conduct studies for DNA sequencing applied to these different areas, making it possible to decipher the genetic code of species and analysed biological material.


  • Design and conduct sequencing experiments according to guidelines established by the principal investigator of the centre or department.
  • Deal with obtaining DNA sequences of different samples from different laboratories.
  • Extract DNA from biological samples (bacteria, virus, cells, yeasts, etc.) using commercial kits designed for obtaining genetic material.
  • Monitor the course of the sequencing process.
  • Ensure the maintenance of the sequencing device and the availability of kits.
  • Support the development and implementation of new protocols.
  • Participate in conferences and seminars where results from research may be presented.
  • Be aware of developments in sequencing techniques and protocols.
