NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Roche Molecular Systems plans to close its Roche Sequencing Solutions facility in Madison, Wisconsin — the former NimbleGen — over the next two years and lay off all 79 employees.

In a statement, the company said it plans to implement "a new operational structure" and shift activities to the San Francisco Bay area or other Roche sites.

According to a notification filed earlier this week with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, Roche plans to start the layoffs Dec. 31 of this year and complete them by June 30, 2020.
