Roche NimbleGen and BGI Develop Advanced MHC Region Capture Technology for Human Disease and Biomedical Research
Date:11/28/2011

e of the gene coding regions," said Hui Jiang, Technical Specialist at BGI. "The high accuracy of this new technology is demonstrated by a 99.42% concordance with traditional genotyping technologies.  But not only does this technology enable accurate genotyping of known SNPs, it provides the opportunity to discover novel SNPs."

"This MHC region capture technology had been optimized by advanced probe design and capturing methods with Roche NimbleGen, which greatly increases the coverage and capture efficiency of MHC region compared to all other approaches we have attempted in the past. Meanwhile, the pooling technology has been improved, which not only can efficiently capture multiple samples in a single reaction, but it also significantly reduces the cost. I believe the combination of this revolutionary capture technology with high-throughput sequencing technologies will help advance research and development of new medicines for human diseases." said Jiang.
