Genewiz, a New Jersey-based contract research organization that offers DNA-based services, has opened a new laboratory in Boston where it will offer individual tube and high-volume DNA sequencing, primer walking, and sequencing from bacterial colonies, phage supernatant, and glycerol stocks.

The company said that it will continue to offer its other services, including gene synthesis and molecular biology and genomic services for research and regulatory clients, through its South Plainfield, NJ headquarters.

Genewiz also has laboratories in Washington DC; San Diego; Suzhou, China; and Beijing.

Expression Analysis has expanded its sequencing services to include single-lane sequencing with "guaranteed turnaround times and firm fixed pricing."

The new service will be offered on the Illumina Genome Analyzer and will include shotgun sequencing, ChIP-seq, mRNA-seq, and small RNA-seq. Clients will also be able to track their samples throughout the whole process through the company's Flow Cell Tracker.
