FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fort Collins, Colorado, 05/6/2019 – The Sequencing Center, a genome sequencing provider for biological and clinical research, announced today that it will provide human whole genome sequencing (WGS) services for genomic medical research. Historically, the company has focused on targeted human genome sequencing for clinical research. With this new service, The Sequencing Center will provide a comprehensive suite of whole genome and targeted solutions, continuing its expansion in the $69B human clinical research market.
“We’re extremely excited and pleased to offer human whole genome sequencing services for our customers,” said Richard Casey, PhD, CEO of The Sequencing Center. “Sequencing the entire human genome provides a comprehensive view of gene structure and function, which is vital for research in genomic medicine. Human WGS is broadly applicable in disease prognosis, studying familial gene inheritance patterns, population genetics and for advancing the entire field of genomic research. Physicians, clinicians, and other researchers will benefit greatly from this new service.”
Sequencing the entire human genome generates very large, highly complex datasets. To address this issue the company includes bioinformatics data analysis services to assist with the interpretation of results. It also includes data management services to help clients with data transmission, storage, and archival processes. The company performs free DNA extraction for those clients who wish to submit samples for sequencing.
“We provide comprehensive services that deliver actionable results for the WGS research community,” said Ryan Casey, Head of Product and Business Development. “Our competitive pricing strategies are designed to fit the budgets of cost-conscious researchers while maintaining rapid turnaround time so researchers can act on their results in a timely fashion. I get really excited thinking about how this is going to accelerate the discovery process for human genetics.”
This new service offered by The Sequencing Center provides researchers with a powerful method for human genomic insight and discovery. It is available to researchers simply by submitting their samples today.
