'Enrichment of Genomic Loci for Targeted Sequencing Application' Is Focus of 2009 AGBT Conference Workshop
Date:1/30/2009

LEXINGTON, Mass., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Olson, Manager of Nucleic Acid Applications, of RainDance Technologies, Inc., will present "Enrichment of Genomic Loci for Targeted Sequencing Applications," to explain application of the RainStorm micro-droplet technology on the new RDT 1000 instrument, at the 2009 Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference on Friday, February 6th, in Marco Island, Florida.

RainDance Technologies is a provider of innovative microdroplet-based solutions which enable and benefit biological applications utilized in human health and disease research.

"Recent advances in DNA sequencing technologies have improved accuracy and dramatically reduced cost. However, even with the improved efficiency of 'second generation' systems, sequencing thousands of human genomes across various phenotypes is still economically unrealistic. To exploit the full potential of new sequencing techniques, a robust method for isolating biologically relevant genomic loci on the megabase scale will be required," said Olson.

Olson has more than twenty years of experience in molecular biology, technology development and DNA diagnostics. He manages the Nucleic Acids Applications group at RainDance Technologies (www.RainDancetech.com) and is responsible for the development of the company's Sequence Enrichment application.

Olson will present "Enrichment of Genomic Loci for Targeted Sequencing Applications" at the 2009 AGBT meeting on Friday, February 6th, at 2:00 p.m. in the Islands Ballroom at the Marco Island Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa, Florida.

The 2009 Advances in Genome Biology and Technology conference (http://www.agbt.org/), a premier scientific forum for capturing the latest advances in new DNA sequencing technologies and for presentations on the applications of genomics to diverse areas in biology and biomedicine, runs February 4-7, 2009.

About RainDance Technologies

RainDance Technologies Inc. is a provider of innovative microdroplet-based solutions for human health and disease research. The speed and simplicity of the company's exciting new technology platform enable researchers to design experiments in ways that were previously unaffordable or unimaginable. The company's RainStorm(TM) technology produces picoliter-volume droplets at a rate of 10 million per hour. Each droplet is the functional equivalent of an individual test tube and can contain a single molecule, reaction, or cell. This versatile technology can adapt proven assays for high-speed workflows with minimize process-induced bias or error.

RainDance's initial application will focus on the targeted sequencing of the human genome --- one of the fastest-growing segments of the $1 billion DNA sequencing market. This application will enable the high-resolution analysis of genetic variation between individuals and populations at a level unmatched by current methodology.

RainDance was founded in 2004 by scientists from Harvard University; the Medical Research Centre in Cambridge, England and the ESPCI in Paris.
