At Albin Paul's microarray blog, he announces that NimbleGen Systems and 454 Life Sciences have teamed up with Baylor College of Medicine to create “sequence capture” technology. The technique combines chips with next-gen sequencing, the end goal being to create a whole-genome human exome microarray that is faster and cheaper than using PCR for selective resequencing. Baylor's Richard Gibbs presented at Venter's GME conference in October.
