    DNA Electronics partners with Roche to develop semiconductor based sequencing system

    DNA Electronics, a fabless semiconductor provider of solutions for real-time DNA and RNA analysis, announced today that it has entered a partnership with 454 Life Sciences, a Roche Company. The collaboration will focus on the development of a low-cost, high-throughput, long read, high density DNA sequencing system. As part of the agreement, DNA Electronics has signed a non-exclusive licence to provide relevant IP from its proprietary semiconductor technology portfolio to Roche. This technology which enables sensitive detection of nucleotide incorporation during sequencing will build on 454 Life Sciences’ current pyrosequencing-based platform. The collaboration leverages DNA Electronics’ unique knowledge of semiconductor design and expertise in pH-mediated detection of nucleotide insertions with 454 Life Sciences’ long read sequencing chemistry to produce a seamless evolution from optical detection to low-cost, highly scalable electrochemical detection.

      And it will be called "Ion Current"?...

        This was pretty interesting to me also...especially since DNA Electronics licensed their tech to Ion Torrent as well.

        Maybe we're heading for a big IP battle! Exciting...

          Exciting indeed eco

          I think the next 2 years is going to be great viewing for the impartial observer - and this site will probably give a pretty good front row seat!

            Sample prep for ISFETs

            I wonder if emPCR IP for sample prep will also fall into the fray. All the ISFET sensor tech will need a bead in a well for measurement until solid state nanopores come along.

              Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
              by seqadmin


              The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

              Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
              by seqadmin




              The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
