Roche and DNA Electronics to Develop Semiconductor-based DNA Sequencing System
Rocheâ€™s 454 Life Sciences subsidiary entered into exclusive partnership with DNA Electronics
The semi-based DNA sequencing system would be designed to offer low-cost and high-throughput. London-based DNA Electronics brings to the table its IP covering detection of nucleotide incorporation during sequencing, and its semiconductor design knowledge. Roche brings its 454â€™s long read chemistry. DNA Electronics has developed technology that can detect DNA nucleotide incorporations via pH changes, which the company notes allows real-time DNA sequencing and analysis.
