OpGen announces sequence assembly and finishing of first reference genome of domestic goat

| December 31, 2012

In Maryland, OpGen announced its ARGUS Whole Genome Mapping System technology was used in combination with next-generation sequencing to produce the first, high-quality reference genome of the domestic goat. The study, which was led by BGI-Shenzhen and Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences was published online today in Nature Biotechnology.  In the study, OpGen’s ARGUS system produced 100,000 single molecule restriction maps in three hours. This resulted in 30 times the physical coverage of the goat genome.
