In the realm of DNA sequencing, technology developers contribute to advancement in important ways, by building increasingly fast-moving tools that untangle the intricacies of the human genome, and by constructing analytics platforms to wade through the resulting mountains of genetic data.

Recently, DNAnexus and Twist Bioscience announced a collaboration aimed at accelerating research and reducing the time to design, validate, and commercialize new, high-quality, next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based diagnostic tests. 

In this webinar we will cover the challenges that this collaboration aims to solve and how the partnership is poised to enable significant scientific outcomes. We will also take your questions live about this exciting advancement. Topics include:

  • How the healthcare and life sciences industry can leverage biomedical data to accelerate scientific discoveries and deliver better patient care
  • The importance of achieving superior NGS target enrichment efficiency 
  • Why reducing complex data analysis bottlenecks helps simplify operations and accelerates time-to-insight
  • The impact that leveraging a purpose-built bioinformatics platform offers in terms of resources, cost savings, and risk avoidance
