structural variation analysis

Because of COVID-19, the San Diego-based firm said it was unable to ship new instruments and many users were unable to operate their existing ones.

With genome sequences for nearly 900 individuals with primary immunodeficiency, researchers identified candidate genes and common variant contributors.

The company is also participating in a study, being conducted at Hannover Medical School, investigating the genetics of susceptibility to COVID-19.

The genome mapping firm had fallen out of compliance with respect to its loan agreement with Innovatus and will prepay $5 million toward the loan principal.

The genome mapping firm's instrument revenues were down 50 percent year over year in the fourth quarter, offset by an increase in consumables revenue.

The firm's whole-genome amplification chemistry may help researchers better understand cancer heterogeneity, even between cells.

A sequencing study suggests circularized DNA may be a more common source of somatic rearrangements in neuroblastoma than previously appreciated.

In a preprint posted on BioRxiv this week, Decode researchers used nanopore sequencing to characterize structural variants in more than 1,800 Icelandic individuals.

The San Diego-based genomic analysis firm reported $3.3 million in revenue, driven by growth in North America sales, offset by a decline in international sales.
