HudsonAlpha and Macrogen to Provide Services on GemCode Platform
News Sep 09, 2015
10X Genomics has announced that HudsonAlpha Institute of Biotechnology and Macrogen have now adopted the GemCode platform as part of their service offerings.
“We are excited to be able to offer services on the GemCode platform to both the HudsonAlpha and wider research communities who will benefit from improved structural variation detection and the ability to see haplotype information routinely, all from 1ng of DNA,” said Shawn Levy, Director of the Genomic Services Lab at HudsonAlpha.
“As one of the largest service providers in the world Macrogen believes that the GemCode platform will add significant value to our customers’ projects by offering data that was previously difficult to access and strengthen our diverse sequencer platforms,” said Chong Hyon-yong, CEO of Macrogen.
The GemCode platform partitions arbitrarily long DNA molecules (including > 100kb) and prepares sequencing libraries in parallel, so that all fragments produced within a partition share a common barcode. A simple workflow combines large partition numbers with a massively diverse barcode library to generate >100,000 barcode containing partitions, while only requiring ~ 1ng of DNA input.
“10X Genomics is excited to partner with these leading institutions to allow the broader research community expanded access to our transformational Linked-Read data,” said Brian McKelligon, VP of Sales and Support at 10X Genomics.
