Through Navican, patients at Intermountain can get tested on an internally developed NGS platform that gauges a range of actionable genes implicated in cancer. 

The company plans to raise $25 million in a Series B financing round. It is also working on a two-color chemistry and aims to develop an instrument for clinical applications.

The company submitted more than 95,000 recently re-curated variants identified in more than 1,500 genomes sequenced in Illumina's Clinical Services Laboratory.

Researchers took two complementary approaches to assemble the Xenopus laevis genome — whole-genome and long-insert clone-based end sequencing.

The database is intended to provide the research community with a resource of control cases to aid in the evaluation of variants of unknown significance in breast cancer.

This webinar will provide an update on Phase 2 of the ongoing ABRF Next Generation Sequencing Study, an effort to evaluate the performance of NGS platforms and to identify optimal methods and best practices. Phase 1 of the study focused on RNA sequencing, while Phase 2 is focusing on genomic DNA samples.
