long fragment read technology

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. 

The new genome assembly for a western lowland gorilla named Susie has fewer gaps than a prior assembly produced from short reads and Sanger sequencing.

The PNAS study says foreign genes account for only 1 percent of tardigrade genomes, compared to 17 percent as claimed in a previous study.

In a study published in Nature Biotechnology today, the researchers used the GemCode platform to haplotype a HapMap family trio, a cancer cell line, and a primary cancer.

Researchers sequenced the desiccation-tolerant grass, Oropetium thomaeum, and analyzed its repetitive sequences.

A Mount Sinai-led team of researchers combined the technologies to generate de novo assemblies and get a better view of structural variations.

The method could have future applications in preimplantation genetic diagnosis and circulating tumor cell analysis.

10X's approach is a synthetic long-read technology that leverages existing short-read NGS technology but fills in knowledge gaps about the human genome.
