Arbor Biosciences Partners with Curio Genomics for Analysis of IWGSC Wheat Exome

Published: 07/16/2019 03:35 pm

Arbor Biosciences, a division of Chiral Technologies, Inc and worldwide leader in next generation sequencing (NGS) target enrichment, announces a partnership with Curio Genomics for bioinformatics analysis of the wheat genome. Arbor has an ongoing collaboration with the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC), an international organization dedicated to developing a gold-standard reference genome for bread wheat cv. Chinese Spring, to provide IWGSC members with a standardized exome panel for research and development. Adding the Curio Genomics strategic partnership allows Arbor Biosciences to harness the power of the Curio Genomics platform in an end-to-end solution, from DNA to variant analysis, for wheat exome sequencing through their myReads(R) NGS services division.
