Sequencing Technology

By sequencing multiple prostate cancer metastases, an international team of researchers has described how the disease spreads.

JGI is interested in coupling the technique with microfluidics as an automated way of picking out metabolically active cells.

JGI is working to develop technologies around the front and back ends of NGS, and sees rising interest in synthetic biology. 

The partners will work to establish Centrum Badan as the preferred testing partner for the NGS-based test in Poland, which had 376,000 live births last year.

The NextSeq CN500 sequencer was developed in collaboration with Illumina to offer clinical non-invasive prenatal testing for the Chinese market.
