July 11, 2012 NATURE has published a research article detailing a new methodology to dramatically improve the accuracy of whole genome sequencing. The work was done by a company called Complete Genomics. The NATURE paper describes the Company’s “Long Fragment Read” technology (LFR) that not only improves the accuracy, but also reduces the amount of DNA needed, for analysis. This technology is expected to accelerate the clinical adoption of whole genome sequencing.
