NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – BGI and Diagenode are collaborating to implement standard methods in epigenetics and next-generation sequencing sample preparation.

The David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and the BioMicro Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are collaborating with Diagenode to automate assays for ChIP-seq and methyl-seq experiments.

The Diagenode agreement is the first in what BD expects to be a string of similar deals with molecular diagnostics developers in order to expand the number of tests that can run on the BD Max.
