An Introduction to the Lab
The Wittwer DNA Lab is comprised of individuals with expertise in molecular diagnostics, mechanical engineering, mathematics and software development. With the guidance of Dr. Carl Wittwer
(Principal Investigator) and Dr. Bob Palais
(UVU Mathematics Faculty), these areas of expertise allow the lab to successfully develop technologies for simpler and faster DNA analysis. A detailed lab profile was published in Biotechniques (November, 2008)
High resolution melting, assay development, and real-time PCR are the focus of the lab's molecular diagnostics research.
A small group of engineers with a focus in mechanical engineering, optics, thermal cycling, and biochemistry with the goal of advancing medical instrumentation.
