genes, promoters, regulatory elements, the length and location of long areas of repeats as well as viral integration sites across the entire genome that are often implicated in the cause of complex diseases such as cancer. Assembling such a comprehensive view of a genome has previously been a major hurdle because information about large repetitive elements and structural variations are lost with next generation sequencing (NGS) methods.
"We are very excited to add this platform to our portfolio of cutting edge technologies and service solutions as we seek to continue providing better and more comprehensive genomic services for our customers worldwide," said Yingrui Li, CEO of BGI Tech, a subsidiary of BGI that provides scientific and technological service solutions to biomedical, agricultural, and environmental customers globally.
"With the Irys System, we enable researchers to rapidly identify accurate structural information over long-range distances with virtually no alteration to the native genomic samples," said Han Cao, Ph.D., founder and chief scientific officer of BioNano Genomics. "As a versatile and sensitive single molecule imaging platform, Irys enables the de novo assembly of genomes containing complex, highly variable regions, as well as the accurate detection of all types of structural variation, both balanced and imbalanced, within complex heterogeneous samples."
BGI is the latest to adopt the Irys System. Others include the Garvan Institute, who are using their Irys for human and cancer genomics, UC San Francisco, for genomic investigations of a range of species from viruses to humans, and Kansas State University, for the i5k Insect and other Arthropod Genome Sequencing Initiative.
Irys makes it possible to routinely and accurately detect genomic structural variation and to finish genome assemblies. The fully automated Irys benPage: 1 2 3 4 Related biology technology :1
