BGI unveils monkey exome sequencing platform
November 2011
SHARING OPTIONS:

SHENZHEN, China—BGI has announced the development of the first exome-sequencing platform for the monkey, based on next-generation sequencing technology and monkey exome capturing array (MECA), a proprietary exome capture array designed by BGI and intended for use in capturing the entire monkey exome. This combination stands to simplify the workflow of exome sequencing experiments in addition to improving cost-effectiveness and turnaround time. The similarities that humans and monkeys share, both physiologically and genetically, have led to monkeys, macaques in particular, being widely used in biomedical research.  
 
Jiong Zhang, technical specialist at BGI, noted in a press release that "the unique combination of MECA and next-generation sequencing allows researchers to understand efficiently the detailed genetics of monkeys. We believe our breakthrough will enable monkey exome sequencing to play a more important role in biomedical and evolutionary studies."
