Agencourt Bioscience Corporation Genomic Services is Key Sequencing Collaborator in Newly Released Study of Human Genetic Structural Variation


5/1/2008 2:11:27 PM

FULLERTON, Calif. (May 1, 2008) - Agencourt Bioscience Corporation, a Beckman Coulter company, announced today that its Genomic Services operation performed the genome sequencing in a groundbreaking new study on human genetic variation. The work is published in an article, "Mapping and Sequencing of Structural Variation from Eight Human Genomes," in the May 1 issue of the journal Nature. The study used a novel sequence-based approach to achieve higher accuracy than previous work that used signal intensity differences to predict regions of variation. Agencourt worked closely with Evan Eichler of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and University of Washington Department of Genome Sciences to pioneer this sequence-based approach. Ten Agencourt scientists are among the lead authors of the study, which was funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute.
