SHARING OPTIONS:

BEIJING & SINGAPORE—Novogene, AITbiotech Pte Ltd and the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) recently shared news that NovogeneAIT Genomics Singapore, a joint venture between Novogene and AITbiotech, will be launching a whole-genome sequencing center in Biopolis, Singapore. This new facility will offer Illumina HiSeq X-based whole-genome sequencing and bioinformatics analysis of human, plant and animal samples for biomedical and agricultural researchers, with a large part of its sequencing capabilities aimed at supporting public research projects and super-scale sequencing initiatives in the region. NovogeneAIT will also be collaborating with GIS on the development of new applications of next-generation sequencing.
 
“We are delighted to work with a local biotech company,” said Prof. Ng Huck Hui, executive director of GIS. “Such public-private partnerships will prove to be highly beneficial as it leverages the strengths of both parties to advance genomic science and medicine in Singapore, as well as to create successful local biotech companies.”
