Illumina's TruSight HLA
Illumina has launched its TruSight HLA, a sequencing-based solution for accurate HLA typing across thousands of known and novel HLA alleles. The kit includes the TruSight HLA Sequencing Panel, a single assay for ultra-high resolution analysis of all the key genes within the major histocompatibility complex, reagents for preparing and sequencing DNA libraries, and optimized data analysis with software from Conexio Genomics.
ArcherDx has launched new versions of its Archer suite of software programs.
Archer Analysis 3.1 now supports automated sequence analysis, which improves turnaround times and enables researchers to call genomic alterations faster than previously possible. Archer Assay Designer 2.0 supports the creation of multiplex gene fusion assays by modifying existing, optimized catalog panels. And Archer Quiver, a database of gene fusion information, has been updated to include the latest information from COSMIC, PubMed, and other repositories.
DNAnexus' Whole Genome Assembly Offering
DNAnexus is now offering whole-genome assembly using long-read sequencing data from Pacific Biosciences' RS II system.
Sequences are assembled on DNAnexus' cloud-based platform using PacBio's Falcon assembler. The software, along with Drosophila, Arabidopsis, cancer cell line, and CHM13 datasets, are available on the platform under the 'featured projects' tab. DNAnexus is continuing to collaborate with PacBio to develop new features and improve current PacBio assembly technology in the cloud.
