The approach, which uses 10x Genomics technology for haplotyping, requires neither mutation-specific assays nor DNA from affected family members.
Researchers from Pacific Biosciences and elsewhere tested their approach on Arabidopsis thaliana before applying it to wine grape and coral fungus genomes.
The PGP team used Complete Genomics' Long-Fragment Read technology to analyze the set of samples.
More than half the transcripts Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory researchers captured were novel, including novel isoforms of known genes.
The company recently unveiled the newest editions of its Fragment Analyzer platforms and an expanded portfolio of kits, and announced a partnership with Pacific Biosciences.
Both companies are working together to market both companies' technology for long-read DNA sequencing.
