AstraZeneca'sVarDict was designed to more accurately identify complex tumor mutations in DNA and RNA sequencing data even in samples with low tumor content.

AstraZeneca will use the Bina Genomic Management Solution to support genomic data analysis as part of its drug development in three therapeutic areas.

Roche also said that it is paying up to $121 million for Bina Technologies.

Roche will integrate Bina in the first quarter of 2015 and incorporate its technology into the Genia sequencing system.

Bina will be integrated into the Roche Sequencing Unit in Q1 2015 and will develop its informatics solution for Roche's sequencing systems. 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The US Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded Bina Technologies a $1 million contract to conduct genomic analyses as part of the VA's Million Veteran Program, Bina said today.
