We attended NextGen Omics UK 2021

November 5, 2021

Our experts were on hand to discuss how Xdrop technology can integrate into your genomics and metagenomics workflows, boosting the resolution of long- and short-read sequencing. It was a great opportunity to find out how our instrument and services can support research.

We also sponsored a talk by Dr. Claudia Kutter of the Karolinska Institute on multiomics data and CRISPR editing. 

Functional validation of multiomics data - CRISPR perks and nuisances

In the agenda:

  • CRISPR as a toolbox to study regulatory gene functionality
  • Optimized cellular transfection of large CRISPR vectors
  • Detection of unexpected CRISPR on-target events with Xdrop and Oxford Nanopore Technologies

Webinar: Gene Clusters and Speciation – Unraveling Complex Plant Genomes

September 7, 2021

Austin Garner from Harvard University and Robert Heal from the Sainsbury Laboratory presented how they gain high-resolution insights into complex plant genomes. Austin studies the genetic underpinnings of speciation, using Samplix's Xdrop to sequence relevant long stretches of the Phlox drummondii 6-gigabase genome. Robert investigates genes that boost plant resistance to pathogens, using Xdrop to assemble complex gene clusters with the goal of cloning novel resistance genes to develop blight-resistant potato varieties.

Samplix sponsored talk at ESHG 2021

Long-read whole genome analysis of human single cells

August 28, 2021

Dr. Adam Ameur presented a first-time application of droplet multiple displacement amplification followed by long-read sequencing to examine the genomic architecture of a single human cell. 

Samplix discussed Xdrop at Plant Biology Europe 2021

Xdrop: Targeted enrichment to overcome challenges in sequencing large and complex plant genomes

June 29, 2021

Peter Mouritzen, VP Application and Market Development, gave a great talk on the value that target enrichment with Xdrop can bring to overcoming the challenges of long- and short-read sequences of plant genomes. He shared data and insights from some of our collaborations elucidating the complex genomic landscape of plants.
