    Here's the BRCA2 gene sequence. The URL where I found the info is also in the file.

    I'll get the BRCA2 and set up a Google doc shared collection tomorrow. I don't think one exists yet for this group.

    The UltraClean Tissues & Cells DNA Isolation Kit would be more affordable, especially if we want order more than a few samples. I spoke with someone at Mobio today and the difference in cost between the two kits is because everything is indivually packaged in the Forensic Kit. This is to prevent the samples from being contaminated.

    Eric, I looked over the samples at and the Ultra Clean DNA Forensic Sample Kit looked appropriate. I am assuming we will be using a microcetrifuge. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Looking forward to meeting next Sunday to work on BRCA1. Did you want us to send that the sequence to you in a TXT file or just bring it? I've downloaded it from NCBI.

    Hey I want to thank you all for coming. After staying for happy hour I forgot what I was going to post. I hoping to have one of the people post the other events for me soon. Eric
