Genome Institute of Singapore Purchases Four Additional Illumina Genome Analyzers

  • Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) has purchased four Genome Analyzers from Illumina, totaling its installed base to six. The Genome Analyzers will be used in projects such as the construction of transcriptional networks linked to cancer and stem cells.

    Genome analyzers will be paired with Illumina’s Pair-End-diTag sequencing technology to study genome structures and functions. PET technology is used for human genome annotation and to identify complete fusion genes that function as oncogenes.

    Illumina’s mRNA-Seq is also available—a new product for full-length, cDNA sequencing that is powered by Illumina's sequencing technology and the Genome Analyzer.
