SAN DIEGO, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioNano Genomics, the developer of the Irys™ System for genome mapping, announced today the appointment of Fahim Amini , Ph.D. as vice president, Commercial Operations EMEA. Dr. Amini will further expand BioNano's commercial reach for the Irys System, making it possible for researchers and clinicians in Europe, Middle East and Africa to access BioNano's recently launched Irys platform.
"As we prepare to expand access to the Irys System globally into Europe and beyond, we are looking forward to meeting the needs of researchers and clinicians who require deeper insights into genome variations," said Todd Dickinson , Ph.D., vice president, Global Commercial Operations. "Fahim's addition to the team at BioNano Genomics is a key component of our commercial roll-out in Europe. Fahim has a proven track record in supporting labs in Europe, big and small, in the successful adoption of new platforms for genome analysis."
"This is an exciting time in genomics research, especially with a commercial system that will propel the field of genomics, with all its tremendous advances in the recent years, to the next level," said Dr. Amini. "It is widely known that detecting structural variation and penetrating difficult repetitive regions with today's short and medium-read technologies has been challenging. By preserving the native genomic structure, the Irys System allows new insights to be gained through direct visualization of genome structure, enabling the detection of structural variation, significantly improving genome assemblies, phasing haplotypes, and many other applications yet to be developed. I am eager to help resea
