SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a paper published today in Nature Biotechnology, researchers at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Institute for Human Genetics and Cardiovascular Research Institute demonstrated the utility of the Irys™ platform from BioNano Genomics for structural variation analysis and de novo assembly of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. Using Irys, the authors were able to accurately map and comprehensively analyze structural variation in the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region, which is associated with autoimmune and infectious diseases.
