At Genetwister, there is a strong focus on leveraging the state-of-the-art technologies to allow novel applications in genomics research. The researchers at Genetwister scout for and evaluate the latest developments in sequencing, genotyping and other technologies in the field of genomics. Long read sequencing allows generation and improvement of de novo assemblies of complex plant genomes. In addition, haplotype discovery using long range genomic information is valuable for application in breeding programs.
High Molecular Weight DNA isolation
With the increasing demands for DNA molecule size and purity on the newest long read sequencing platforms, comes the need for developing new protocols for DNA isolation from different biological sources in the laboratory at Genetwister.
