Early-access users have used IDT's rhAmpSeq technology to create genetic marker maps for plants and to validate off target events in gene editing.

 

An analysis of B cell adaptive immune receptor sequences in 10 individuals uncovered exceptionally diverse antibody repertoires with a subset of shared antibody clonotypes.

The nucleic acid diagnostic platform they are developing doesn't require expensive optics, and it could be available as a manufacturing prototype in about a year.

Using biorepository strains, researchers from the J. Craig Venter Institute and elsewhere profiled Zika virus consensus sequences, variant patterns, and phylogenetics.

With sequence data for more than 118,000 tumors profiled at Foundation Medicine, investigators tracked PDL1 amplification prevalence and possible treatment implications.

The blood-based test could eventually become a rapid point-of-care diagnostic in the ICU, with startup Microbiome as a commercial vehicle.
