The firm's technology, called genotyping by random amplicon sequencing, or GRAS, should improve the efficiency of identifying and selecting markers for crop improvement.

Including the current financing round, the company has raised a total of nearly $2.4 million. 

The research team used selective amplification to sequence whole genomes of the parasites, revealing new information about how they evolved to infect human hosts. 

The scientists believe they have created a more accurate way to detect mutations that often lead to hereditary colorectal cancer.

The partnership is the latest in a string of international distribution announcements for Sygnis' primer-free whole genome amplification technology.

The researchers also showed that the method provides greater and more even coverage and less bias in GC rich regions compared to PCR-based sequencing.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — The US Food and Drug Administration has cleared for marketing Quidel's AmpliVue GAS Assay for detection of Group A Streptococcus from throat swabs in patients with symptoms of pharyngitis, the company announced today.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Eurofins Mediogenomix has licensed co-exclusive rights to Orion Diagnostica's strand invasion-based amplification (SIBA) technology, the firms announced today.

A team led by the Scripps Research Institute's Gerald Joyce is beginning its second year of an effort to develop a process analogous to quantitative PCR, in which the growth rate of a synthetic RNA molecule can be used as a quantitative measure of the initial concentration of a t
