BioNano Genomics Announces the Purchase of the Irys System by BGI
Date:7/31/2014

SAN DIEGO and SHENZHEN, China, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioNano Genomics announced today the purchase of an Irys™System by BGI, the world's largest genomics organization. BGI selected BioNano's platform to enable comprehensive exploration of human structural variation (SV) and to provide vastly improved assemblies for various organisms of interest, including those where no reference exists. In addition, BioNano and BGI will partner together to develop new methods for multiplexing on the Irys System, enabling significantly higher sample throughput to be performed with fewer reagents, a capability that will be particularly useful for large-scale studies.

"We have been collaborating with BioNano Genomics on human samples of Asian descent and are impressed by the capabilities of the Irys technology to efficiently detect hundreds of large (>1kb) complex genomic structural variations," said Xun Xu, deputy director at BGI. "As part of our efforts to further elucidate genome biology, BGI needed a solution to investigate large structural variation that is not easily accessible through sequencing, DNA arrays or other technologies. Now it is feasible to do population-scale, comprehensive large structural variation discovery on a single technology platform using BioNano's Irys System." 

The Irys System, which is based on the high-throughput chip, IrysChip™ V2, is an ideal SV discovery tool because it can detect all types of SVs in a single run, enabling rapid and accurate de novo genome assembly and genome completion. Genome maps built with the Irys System reveal the biologically and clinically significant order and orientation of functionally relevant components of complex genomes, including
