QIAGEN Collaborates With Allele Frequency Community to Advance Translational Medicine and Clinical Diagnostics

A coalition of 13 leading life science and diagnostics organizations recently announced the formation of the Allele Frequency Community, a landmark initiative that is creating an extensive, high-quality and ethnically diverse collection of human genomes to address a key challenge in interpreting sequencing data for research and clinical applications. The announcement coincides with the start of the 16th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) scientific meeting in Marco Island, Florida.

Research Documents Rapid Detection of Structural Variation in a Human Genome Using BioNano’s Irys System

BioNano Genomics, Inc., the leader in genome mapping, and BGI, the world’s largest genomics organization, highlight the publication of a peer-reviewed research article and its accompanying data* in GigaScience. This article describes the rapid detection of structural variation in a human genome using the high-throughput, cost-effective genome mapping technology of the Irys® System. Structural variations are known to play an important role in human genetic diversity and disease susceptibility. However, comprehensive, efficient and unbiased discovery of structural variations has previously not been possible through next generation sequencing (NGS) and DNA arrays with their inherent technology limitations.
