whole-genome sequencing

Centogene opened a Boston office in December and plans to open a lab there in a few months as it awaits an FDA decision on its clinical tool.

The genetic testing firm can now offer its Prelude noninvasive prenatal test to residents in New York State.

Funded with €15.4 million from the EU's Horizon 2020 program, the researchers plan to reanalyze almost 20,000 patient exomes and conduct additional tests on selected subgroups.

As of this week, the project had sequenced 39,500 genomes and returned reports for about 3,000 rare disease families and more than 600 cancer patients.

MyGene2 holds cases from 1,225 families, submitted by 880 user accounts, which include 723 unique genes, among them many new disease genes.

The companies plan to offer a service called MyMap, which will include MyGenome next-generation sequencing by Veritas and MediMap pharmacogenomic testing by Inova.

PerkinElmer Genetics will provide clinical whole-genome sequencing, data interpretation, and diagnostic reports to IDG for patients with neurological disorders.

The integration could provide a more complete phenotypic picture that helps clinicians prioritize genetic variants that may have otherwise been missed.

The two firms are offering a combined genetic disease risk and pharmacogenomic analysis that covers 49 conditions and about 220 medications.

SOL will help Personal Genomics to further develop its research projects and implement its new facility dedicated to DNA sequencing.
