Sequencing Technology

Two teams from Europe and the US took the Oxford MinIon sequencer to West Africa to sequence Ebola samples.

Sciex announced the broad commercial rollout of its OneOmics collaboration with Illumina, while Thermo Fisher added proteomics analysis to its cloud platform.

Researchers used Thermo Fisher's Ion Torrent technology to generate the data, which will allow researchers to monitor the evolution of the pathogen in real time.

Pensabio will distribute Illumina's next-generation sequencing platforms and products in the country.

Through targeted sequencing on tumors from several biliary tract subtypes, researchers are uncovering mutations of potential treatment or prognostic relevance.
