Life Technologies, BGI partner on human genome sequencing
December 2010
SHARING OPTIONS:

CARLSBAD, Calif.Life Technologies Corp. and BGI (formerly the Beijing Genomics Institute), have partnered to offer whole human genome resequencing on the SOLiD 4 System. BGI, one of the world's largest genomic centers, has acquired 27 SOLiD 4 Systems, which will allow BGI to deliver 50 whole human genome sequences a month. Whole human genome sequencing on the SOLiD 4 System will be available globally for scientific collaboration and sequencing services. The companies say they can secure sequence data for a complete whole human genome on 30x coverage that includes 100 gigabases of mapped data at an accuracy of 99.9 percent.

"The accuracy of the SOLiD 4 System helps ensure that scientists conducting genomic medicine studies can unearth those hard-to-find mutations that may drive specific diseases," says Mark Gardner, head of product management for the Genetic Systems division of Life Technologies. "BGI's capability will provide researchers across the globe access to the highest quality sequencing that our system generates."
