NRGene, Macrogen ArrayMagic
NRGene and Macrogen have launched a joint sequencing-based genotyping service called ArrayMagic, which the firms said provides ultra-high-density SNP genotying at a low cost per datapoint. As part of the service, the team will launch a dedicated website to advise customers on how to send samples to Macrogen. The partners then employ a sequencing library prep method, developed by iGenomX, to create an ultra-low coverage sequencing dataset for each sample. NRGene then applies its database and analytical tools to impute a high-resolution SNP set from the data.
