The world’s first complete chromosome sequence at #AGBT19

NGHRI’s Dr. Adam Phillippy presents a remarkable dataset – the telomere-to-telomere assembly of a complete human X chromosome When the completion of the Human Genome Project was announced on June 6, 2002, President Bill Clinton said the following: We are here to celebrate the completion of the first survey of […]

The next leap in Personalized Medicine will be advances in sensor technology like Cardea

Can a graphene biosensor company like Cardea Biosciences play a role in making P4 medicine (predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory medicine) a reality? Lee Hood’s vision for P4 medicine It was about six years ago I attended a Personalized Healthcare conference at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia, where Leroy […]


Nabsys single molecule mapping technology

Another interesting single-molecule technology is a company out of Providence (RI) called Nabsys. For several years I had heard the name involved in developing single-molecule sequencing technology, and this technology will start its initial product around genomic mapping, rather than sequencing. For background on genomic mapping and CNV analysis along […]


Oxford Nanopore at AGBT 2014 2

A few attending the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting in Marco Island Florida (February 12 – 15 2014) have blogged about a presentation from David Jaffe (Broad Institute), presenting the first data the next-generation sequencing community has publicly seen from Oxford Nanopore Technologies. For those not familiar with […]


Single molecule in-situ RNA startup Advanced Cell Diagnostics

FFPE (Formalin-fixed paraffin embedded) tissues are standard preparations in the clinical world. It has been estimated that there are millions of FFPE samples stored in countless hospital laboratories and research pathology groups, all part of a standard operating procedure among pathologists and other hospital personnel. These tissue samples are embedded […]


Single molecule mapping OpGen making slow progress 2

In contrast to BioNano Genomics, who is starting commercialization with early access customers now and full commercial launch in the Spring of 2013, OpGen launched the Argus™ Optical Mapping system in the summer of 2010. Their customers use this system for microbial strain mapping, mainly for infectious disease research or […]
