Genia

The university claims that Genia's patents are based on technology that was developed by UCSC researchers and that UCSC should have ownership of them.

The Genia team showed that it could design a 264-nanopore array and use a tagging technique to sequence DNA with single-base resolution.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Following its agreement with Pacific Biosciences last year to develop a sequencing platform for clinical diagnostics, Roche put its strategy for next-generation sequencing on a second leg this week by agreeing to acquire single-molecule nanopore sequencing startup Genia for

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Roche said today that it will acquire Genia Technologies for $125 million in cash and up to $225 million in additional payments tied to milestones. Once the deal closes, Genia will be integrated into the Roche Sequencing Unit.

A team of collaborating researchers from Columbia University, Harvard Medical School, Genia, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology has shown proof of principle for a tag-based single-molecule nanopore sequencing approach they have been developing.

Last week, Base4 Innovation said it plans to collaborate with Hitachi to develop a solid-state nanopore sequencer.
