Illumina had argued that Complete Genomics' patent covering two-color sequencing-by-synthesis chemistry was obvious, but the US PTAB disagreed.

The researchers said a functional investigation of the virus' unknown transcripts and RNA modifications will elucidate its life cycle and pathogenicity.

Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement, the companies have made Diagenode's D-Plex library preparation products available on MGI's sequencing platforms.

According to the complaint, the allegedly infringing products include all those that use nucleotides with a 3’-O-azidomethyl blocking group.

At the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting this week, several MGI customers reported results from the DNBSeq-G400.

The DNBSeq Tx system, several of which are already up and running at the China National GeneBank, can churn out up to 100,000 human genomes per year.

BGI is planning to offer free trials of its MGI DNBSEQ-G400 sequencing system to key opinion leaders, a development Illumina is trying to stop.

The court dismissed BGI's counterclaim against Illumina for willful infringement of its patent but allowed the claim for induced infringement to proceed.

A subsidiary of Curetis, a firm recently merged with OpGen, Ares will use BGI technology to sequence samples in Europe.

The DNBSEQ-T7 ultra-high-throughput sequencer, metagenomic sequencing kit for coronaviruses, and 2019-nCoV RT-qPCR kit have received authorization from China's NMPA.
