Knome will offer its personal genome sequencing and analysis services through SeqWright’s CLIA-certified laboratory. In the collaboration, SeqWright will process and sequence client samples using SOLiD and 454 platforms, while Knome will continue to perform all data analysis and interpretation services.
Knome currently provides two separate sequencing and analysis services for consumers: KnomeSELECT™ and KnomeCOMPLETE™. Launched last month, KnomeSELECT enables consumers to obtain the sequence of their genes as well as a customized analysis of the results. KnomeCOMPLETE is the company’s flagship complete genome sequencing service.
