By | February 15th, 2017|Categories: Conferences, Methods and applications, Next-generation sequencing, Other stuff|Tags: , , |5 Comments

Nanostring had an interesting poster presented by Joe Beecham at last years AGBT describing their novel single-molecule hybridization-based sequencing chemistry (see AGBT and JPMorgan 2016 coverage from GenomeWeb). This utilizes the Nanostring optical barcodes in a new configuration to deliver Hyb&Seq: no amplification, no enzymes, and no […]
