SeqWright to Help Develop VisiGen s Sequencing Technology

NEW YORK, Nov. 9 (GenomeWeb News) - VisiGen Biotechnologies and SeqWright are partnering to develop VisiGen's DNA sequencing technology, the Houston-based companies said today.

 

As part of the alliance, SeqWright will pay VisiGen an undisclosed amount of cash in exchange for VisiGen stock. SeqWright, which provides DNA sequencing and other molecular biology services, will contribute to developing and commercializing VisiGen's rapid sequencing technology.

 

Both companies are housed in the WilburyBiotechnologyCenterin Houston.
