Roche, Genialis Partner to Develop Streamlined NGS Workflow for Drug Discovery

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Genialis said today that it is partnering with Roche Diagnostics to provide researchers with a complete, streamlined, next-generation sequencing workflow for gene expression profiling.

As part of the agreement, the new RNA sequencing analysis workflow integrates Roche's KAPA RNA HyperPrep Kits — a single-day RNA-seq library preparation that improves the efficiency and sensitivity of sequencing low-input samples — with Genialis' software platform. Genialis will provide an automated data processing pipeline and guided interpretation workflow for gene expression analyses, supporting Roche's entire line of KAPA kits.

"The insights researchers can derive from high-throughput RNA sequencing data are critical to furthering the advancement of drug discovery and precision medicine," Genialis Cofounder and CEO Rafael Rosengarten said in a statement. "Through this partnership, researchers will have much more control over their data and be able to quickly generate and disseminate actionable information to push their research forward."
