Next-Generation Sequencing

The latest news on next-generation sequencing.

The firm is also pursuing advances in its manufacturing and ordering processes that it says will help it scale to $500 million in annual revenues.

Total fiscal fourth quarter revenues more than doubled while the synthetic DNA maker's fiscal 2020 revenues grew 66 percent to $90.1 million.

The partnership goes hand-in-hand with Genentech's new precision basket trial, for which it will identify and enroll patients across OneOncology's network.

The company presented new evidence for the sensitivity of its multi-cancer early detection test and robustness of its automated library prep system.

The firm also discussed recent studies comparing its UltraSeek lung cancer assay with more established liquid biopsy tests to detect drug-resistant mutations.

At the AMP 2020 annual meeting, the Chicago pediatric hospital described how to modernize variant calling, as new human genome assemblies are in the works.

Developed by researchers at Yale University, the method, called deterministic barcoding in tissue sequencing, can map thousands of genes at 10 micron resolution.

The Regeneron Genetics Center will provide whole-exome sequencing for 150,000 patients who will be able to opt-in to receive actionable results.

Illumina, Twist Bioscience, Western Digital, and Microsoft are teaming up with others to make DNA-based data storage technologies interoperable.

The project will result in the creation of a national cohort for research, as well as an integrated clinical and genomic data infrastructure at the national level.
