10X Genomics unwraps its 'toaster oven' for better DNA sequencing
California-based 10X Genomics, which raised $55.5 million in venture capital recently, is providing its first technical look at the technology that drew the investment. The company and its scientific collaborators are discussing its method for assembling tough "long-read" stretches of DNA into whole genomes at the Advances in Genome Biology & Technology conference. Genome sequencing has gotten much faster and cheaper in recent years, but today’s genomes still suffer from informational gaps. Part of the reason is technical.
