10X Genomics GemCode Platform
10X Genomics has started shipping the GemCode platform for generating long range genomic information from short read sequencing data. The platform consists of instrumentation, reagents, and software and generates so-called Linked-Reads that deliver haplotype phasing, structural variation, and other genomic information. GemCode, which requires 1 nanogram of input DNA, partitions arbitrarily long DNA molecules and prepares multiple barcoded sequencing libraries in parallel. 10X Genomics previewed the product earlier this year at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology conference.
