The MCIC is a shared technology laboratory located at the Ohio State University, Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in Wooster (OH). We house equipment and provide services in microscopy (light, confocal, transmission and scanning electron microscopy), and in the area of genomics and molecular biology (small scale sequencing, genotyping, massive parallel sequencing). Our mission is to support research at the Ohio State University. The facility is also available to other research and educational institutions.
