Complete Genomics and Gencove Partner for Bundled Low-Pass Whole Genome Sequencing Solution at PAG 31

17 January 2024 | Wednesday | News

Complete Genomics, a life sciences company that provides novel, end-to-end DNA sequencing solutions, today announced a joint marketing agreement with Gencove, a pioneer of low-pass whole genome sequencing (lpWGS) imputation and analysis, to offer a bundled solution to deliver high-capacity and cost-effective whole genome information.

The partnership will combine Gencove's platform for data analytics and management with Complete Genomics' sequencing products and automation capabilities via high-throughput nucleic acid extraction, automated library preparation on its DNBSEQ-T7RS* and DNBSEQ-T20X2RS* sequencers.

"While low-pass whole genome sequencing has long been touted as an advanced method for everything from GWAS analysis to genotyping for molecular breeding, its potential hasn't been fully realized. We believe this bundled solution with Gencove will deliver the highly competitive cost in the industry for low-pass whole genome sequencing, replacing genotyping arrays with a more flexible and comprehensive approach that empowers researchers in molecular breeding, plant and animal research and population-based genetic research," said Dr. Radoje (Rade) Drmanac, Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Complete Genomics.

"Through this partnership with Complete Genomics, we're enabling higher throughput results at a lower cost per sample, making more affordable sequencing accessible to more researchers," said Joseph Pickrell, Ph.D., co-founder, and CEO of Gencove. "It will provide the kind of comprehensive genome coverage that leads to the discovery of novel variants."
