NEW YORK – Twist Bioscience and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals subsidiary Regeneron Genetics Center said on Monday that they have collaborated to develop a custom next-generation sequencing genotyping assay for population genetics.
Under the agreement, Twist will market the Diversity SNP Panel and make it available to customers worldwide.
Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Regeneron began using the custom NGS SNP panel in late 2020, John Overton, VP and chief sequencing officer, said in a statement. The panel includes approximately 1.4 million SNPs from a globally representative population.
In January, Twist revealed it is helping Regeneron convert from SNP microarrays to NGS-based genotyping with Twist's hybridization-based target capture panels. Twist has done at least $9 million in business with the pharma company.
