The companies aim to identify biomarkers that can be used to diagnose early-onset Parkinson's disease, as well as track disease progression.

The company will use the funding to expand its gene editing systems for potential therapeutic use, and to advance research and validation for its pipeline.

This microbial catalog can help in understanding secondary-metabolite biosynthetic potential and resolving thousands of host linkages to uncultivated viruses.

The approach, which is developed for both Illumina and nanopore sequencing, had high sensitivity and specificity for identifying bacteria and fungi.
