SAN DIEGO, Feb. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bionano Genomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNGO), a life sciences instrumentation company that develops and markets Saphyr®, a platform for ultra-sensitive and ultra-specific structural variation detection in genome analysis, announced today that cancer, genetic disease and genomics researchers using the Saphyr system will present their results at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) Conference taking place February 23 – 26 in Marco Island, Florida.
The impact of Saphyr for genome-wide detection of structural variation will be highlighted at AGBT with a total of 19 oral and poster presentations and talks hosted by Bionano.
Erik Holmlin, Ph.D., CEO of Bionano, commented: “As the capabilities of Saphyr advanced, Bionano users have tackled increasingly complex genomic problems, moving from small scale genetic disease studies to large leukemia cohorts and complex heterogeneous cancer samples, in a variety of cancer types. Bionano has the unique ability to detect structural variants genome-wide, unbiased, down to 1% allele fraction and with industry leading sensitivity and false positive rates. The record number of talks and posters presented at this year’s AGBT conference helps demonstrate that Bionano fills a need that’s unmet by NGS, long-read sequencing and traditional cytogenetics.“
Below is a summary of presentations at the 2020 AGBT Conference featuring the use of Bionano genome imaging technology:
