Further evidence – Next Gen Sequencing of DNA for Oragene/saliva samples

Posted by Scott Rabuka on Thu, Apr 05, 2012 @ 10:04 AM

DNA saliva tubeDNA from Oragene/saliva samples continues to gain acceptance as a suitable sample input for next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) from targeted to exome to whole genome sequencing. The latest development in this body of evidence is the recent announcement by Complete Genomics that they will now accept DNA from Oragene/saliva samples for whole genome sequencing. 

Complete Genomics is a premier whole genome sequencing service provider that has worked tirelessly on developing an NGS service that is affordable, highly accurate and extremely comprehensive. We are pleased that they have opened up their service to include DNA from Oragene/saliva samples.

We have always taken a lot of pride in publications that include the use of Oragene samples as the source of DNA in the studies, this is equally true with NGS publications. We are now starting to see more and more posters and publications with Oragene samples for NGS as well. Here are a few:

  1. Trio exome sequencing study using DNA from Oragene/saliva samples:
    Deng: SeqGene: a comprehensive software solution for mining exome- and transcriptome- sequencing data. BMC Bioinformatics 2011 12:267.

We are always interested in research areas that our customers are exploring and would love to hear about projects specific to DNA from Oragene/saliva samples and NGS technologies.  As the Senior Product Manager/Business Lead for DNA Genotek's Research Markets, I am always interested in hearing from you.
