• PacBio and Invitae Team Up to Develop Whole Genome Sequencing-Based Assays for Pediatric Epilepsy Diagnostics

    1 month ago - By Pacific Biosciences

    We're excited to announce a research collaboration with Invitae focused on the investigation of clinically relevant molecular targets for use in the development of advanced diagnostic testing for epilepsy. To support this collaboration, Invitae is expanding its PacBio sequencing capacity to meet the growing demand for clinical applications dependent on highly accurate genomic information.
    More than half of epilepsies can be traced to a genetic cause. When a child presents with seizures, genetic testing can help identify more than 100 underlying, often rare conditions. Early genetic testing...
