At the AGBT conference, MGI Tech showcased its technologies, while a Sanger Institute researcher presented results from a comparison between BGI and Illumina data.

In Cell this week:  factors that regulate the differentiation of T helper type 2, structural variants teased out from long-read sequenced human genomes, and more.

Circulomics, Bionano, Sage Science, RevoluGen, and others have been developing methods for extracting DNA hundreds of kilobases and up to megabases in length.

The round was led by Meritech Capital, with participation from Fidelity and Wells Fargo, and brings the company's total financing to date to $243 million.

The index's 13 percent gain was below the 39 percent surge of 2017 but occurred despite the poor performance of index stocks in December.

Loop's synthetic long read kits and services will be sold by several companies in countries including China, Australia, France, and Germany.
