Complete Genomics, ISB To Collaborate on Genome Studies; Firm Targets $5K Genome for 2009

Abstract:
The Institute for Systems Biology and third-generation sequencing company Complete Genomics announced today that they are collaborating on population-wide human genome studies.

During the first stage of this project, Complete Genomics will sequence five human genomes from samples provided by researchers at ISB.

Complete Genomics' sequencing technology combines DNA nanotechnology, new ligation biochemistry, and ultra-high density arrays to do sequencing in solution with low reagent inputs.

The company said it plans to launch a sequencing services business in the second quarter of 2009 that will offer complete human genomes for $5,000.

Following a proof-of-concept stage, Complete Genomics and ISB will sequence a hundred human genomes in 2009 and 2,000 genomes in 2010. That represents ten percent of Complete Genomics' expected overall 2009 and 2010 sequencing capacity.
