BGI Genomics Whole Exome Sequencing Service
BGI Genomics has launched a clinical research whole exome sequencing service called BGI-Xome, which incorporates clinical interpretation services from UK-based Congenica. BGI will perform WES at its service laboratories, while interpretation will be completed by clinical scientists using the Congenica clinical decision support platform. According to BGI, Congenica's Interpretation platform will allow its service to provide a "gold-standard" and effective solution that eliminates the risk of users missing or misidentifying disease-linked mutations.
Oxford Gene Technology SureSeq NGS Library Kit
Oxford Gene Technology has released a new SureSeq library preparation kit for hybridization-based target capture in next-generation sequencing.
