The Constance, Germany-based DNA sequencing services provider said the new subsidiary is in response to growing demand for its services. It noted that its employee base increased from 45 at the beginning of 2006 to 62 by the end of 2007, and it increased its production capacity from 15.6 gigabases per year to 250 gigabases per year during that period.
