New Products: OGT's Genefficiency Rare Disease Sequencing Service


Oxford Gene Technology is now offering a sequencing service specifically for rare diseases.

The Genefficiency Rare Disease Sequencing Service is tailored for analyzing family trios and large patient cohorts to enable researchers to filter data and rapidly identify genomic variations of interest, the company said.

The service includes DNA enrichment on the Agilent SureSelect platforms, sequencing to 50-fold coverage on the Illumina HiSeq 2000, and data analysis on OGT's software platform, including alignment, quality-control processing, and information filtering from OGT's bioinformatics team.
