Dovetail Genomics

Dovetail offers genome assembly services for plant, animal, and microbial genomes based on its proprietary proximity ligation and sequencing protocol.

The VGP released its first 15 high-quality reference genome assemblies today, which are part of the project's first phase to sequence 260 vertebrate genomes.

Under an NIH grant, the firm plans to develop its Chicago method to analyze fecal metagenomic samples without relying on first culturing the bacteria.

The deal covers distribution of Dovetail's genome assembly services in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Myanmar.

By combining in vivo and in vitro proximity ligation technologies, highly accurate and contiguous genomes can help accelerate more traditional, genetic-marker based crop breeding.

The distribution agreement covers Dovetail's genome assembly services for plant, animal, and microbial genomes.

As part of a broader analysis, Genome 10K researchers compared hummingbird genome assemblies with Phase Genomics Hi-C and Dovetail Genomics Hi-C.

The agreement gives Tomy exclusive rights to market and distribute Dovetail's genome assembly services to researchers in Japan.

The companies will combine Dovetail's genome assembly services with PacBio's SMRT sequencing and de novo assembly tools.
