The company reported $1.9 million in Q1 revenues amid a widened net loss of $7.9 million that was driven by increased operating expenses.

The company also entered into two separate financing agreements totaling $41.5 million with Innovatus Life Sciences Lending Fund, East West Bank, and Aspire Capital.

A team led by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco generated optical genome maps for 154 individuals from more than two dozen populations.

Several groups are comparing Bionano with standard cytogenetic assays like karyotyping, FISH, or array CGH for blood cancer or genetic disease testing.

With Hi-C mapping, FISH imaging insights, and other approaches, researchers identified genome organization plasticity and between-allele variability.

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

With long-read sequencing, mapping, and other approaches, researchers assembled a high-quality genome for Aedes aegypti, a notorious infectious disease vector.

Fresh off its August IPO, the company reported $2.8 million in revenue for the quarter, up from $2.7 million a year ago.

The VGP released its first 15 high-quality reference genome assemblies today, which are part of the project's first phase to sequence 260 vertebrate genomes.

Using Hi-C, genome sequencing, and optical mapping, researchers profiled structural variants in multiple cancer cell lines, leading to potential non-coding drivers.
