BioNano Genomics

The Irys platform from BioNano Genomics provides unprecedented insights into whole-genome biology. Genome maps are generated from massively parallel single-molecule visualization of extremely long DNA. These maps provide dense genome-wide anchor points for ordering and orienting sequencing contigs or scaffolds to greatly increase completion and accuracy of de novo assemblies. Structural variants and repeats are measured directly within long “reads” for comprehensive analysis of what has been referred to as the inaccessible genome. For more see
