BGI Americas, Gencove partner on sequencing service

BGI Americas and Gencove announced that they have agreed to join their respective technologies into a single low-pass sequencing service. The service will join BGI’s DNBseq next-generation sequencing technology — which uses combinatorial probe-anchor synthesis, rolling circle replication linear amplification, and DNA nanoballs — with Gencove’s ImputeSeq low-pass sequencing analysis pipeline.

Both BGI Americas — a unit of China’s BGI — and Gencove will offer the new service in North and South America. Additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
