NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Sorenson Genomics has relocated its Identigene DNA testing division from Houston to Salt Lake City, the firm said today.
Sorenson recently expanded its genetics lab in Salt Lake City, boosting its DNA testing capability five-fold and increasing its workforce by 25 percent.
Sorenson said that the Houston lab would be closed and “a portion” of Identigene’s workforce would be moved to Salt Lake City.
The move follows Sorenson’s decision last October to merge Identigene with its GeneTree division. At the time, Sorenson said that Identigene would continue to operate in Houston and Salt Lake City.
