Source BioScience has won a contract to provide DNA sequencing services to Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin in Ireland, the Nottingham, UK-based service provider said last week.

The contract, awarded after competitive bidding, runs for two years, with an option to be extended for a third year, and is worth at least £300,000 per year ($490,000).

Source BioScience's Dublin-based DNA sequencing laboratory will provide the service to the two universities. The company also has labs in Oxford, Cambridge, London, Nottingham, and Berlin.
