structural variation analysis

10X Genomics' GemCode platform

Several early-access customers presented results from the 10X technology at the meeting.

Members of the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project have developed and validated a new algorithm to track down structural variation in cancer genomes based on soft-clipping data generated when sequence reads are partially aligned to a reference genome.

Using data on 185 human genomes, members of the 1000 Genomes Consortium have identified nearly 30,000 structural variants in the human genome.

The firm is nearing a market launch of the system, called the nanoAnalyzer 1000. The system is being developed for a variety of applications including genome assembly, structural variation analysis, and assessing DNA damage.
