Claritas Genomics to Sequence Exomes for VA Million Veteran Program with Ion Torrent Next-Generation Sequencers
Date:10/21/2013

BOSTON, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Claritas Genomics, together with partners Life Technologies (NASDAQ: LIFE) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), announced today that the Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded Claritas a $9 million contract for exome sequencing of Veteran samples, including those from the Million Veteran Program (MVP) over the next 12 months. The project is one of the largest sequencing initiatives ever undertaken in the U.S.           

Claritas Genomics is supported by Life Technologies and its Ion Proton™ sequencing technology, Alvarez and Associates, which is providing technical support and Lockheed Martin, which is applying its expertise in data security to manage the large amounts of data that will be generated.

Cambridge-based Claritas Genomics is a clinical diagnostics laboratory that provides genetic testing for hospitals and researchers with a focus on pediatric medicine. The company was spun out of Boston Children's Hospital in February and incorporates the expertise, assets, personnel and more than 100 genetic tests, including many specialized diagnostics developed at the hospital. In the nine months since its spin-off it has quickly established itself as a leading resource for large-scale sequencing projects like MVP.

"Claritas Genomics is privileged to be part of this historic project and honored to have a role in helping our Veterans and their families," said Dr. Patrice Milos, Chief Executive Officer of Claritas Genomics. "We know firsthand from our work in pediatrics the power of large datasets to uncover the genetic mechanisms of disease. What's unique about MVP is that we'll produce a massive data
