BioNano Genomics Announces the Adoption of Irys System by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research
Date:12/3/2013

SAN DIEGO and SYDNEY, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioNano Genomics announced today the Garvan Institute of Medical Research has elected to incorporate the Irys technology into their disease research programs, with particular emphasis on improving understanding of prostate cancer.  With their purchase of an Irys System, Garvan becomes the first Early Access user of the technology in Australia. 

"A complete understanding of the human genome variability and its relation to health continues to evade us," said Principal Investigator Dr. Vanessa Hayes, Petre Chair of Prostate Cancer Research at the University of Sydney and Professor of Human Comparative and Prostate Cancer Genomics at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and The Kinghorn Cancer Centre. 

Dr. Hayes continued, "Structural variation, in particular, is a critical and abundant form of novelty in genomes that unfortunately is dramatically understudied due to the lack of suitable tools available.  Rather than generating the same type of data over and over, we are very keen to adopt new technologies that will allow us to better address the question: what are we missing? The Irys platform will have a major impact on our ability to characterize human genome variation, and we are thrilled to be the first group in Australia to adopt this new technology. It will also strengthen the Garvan Institute's capability for human genome analysis." 

The Kinghorn Cancer Centre was established in August 2012 as a joint initiative of the Garvan Institute and St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney.  The Centre's primary focus is to study the molecular biology of cancer, develop new diagnostics and therapeutics, and transition these advances into clinical practice through holistic and individualized clinical care.
