Keygene Purchases a Second Sequencer from 454 for SNP Discovery and Detection System

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 (GenomeWeb News) - Keygene has purchased one of 454 Life Sciences' Genome Sequencer 20 for use in its Complexity Reduction of Polymorphic Sequences technology, 

a SNP-discovery single and detection system intended for use in higher eukaryotes with complex genomes, such as plants.

 

In a collaboration announced  earlier this week involving Roche, 454's distributor, Keygene and 454 will use a separate Genome Sequencer 20 with Keygene's AFLP and SNPWave technologies to develop applications in plant genetics.
