In addition to discussing Twist's liquid biopsy, NGS-based genotyping and SARS-CoV-2 NGS panel, CEO Emily Leproust touted efforts on DNA data storage. 

By extending Terra to the Microsoft Azure cloud, the Broad and Verily Life Sciences hope to facilitate better data sharing, analysis, and reuse.

A new partnership between Microsoft, the Broad, and Verily Life Sciences aims to improve collaboration among Terra users worldwide.

Led by DNAstack and supported by Canada's Digital Technology Supercluster, COVID Cloud looks to build a nationwide bioinformatics infrastructure to address the pandemic.

Illumina, Twist Bioscience, Western Digital, and Microsoft are teaming up with others to make DNA-based data storage technologies interoperable.

The organizations will apply PacBio's HiFi sequencing to a rare disease cohort whose genomes have not yet yielded causal variants by other methods.

The initiative will build up pathogen sequencing capacity through investment from the Gates Foundation, Microsoft, Illumina, and Oxford Nanopore.

The integration on the Microsoft Azure cloud is helping Kaiser make its vast genomics dataset available to a wider pool of researchers.

The diagnostics firm is conducting a 1,000-person study to find T cell profiles associated with the immune response to COVID-19 and recovery from the disease.
