Next-Generation PostLight Sequencing with Semiconductor Chips

We invite you to join Dr. Jeremy Stuart of Life Technologies, to discuss next-generation PostLight™ sequencing with semiconductor chips. Ion Torrent has developed the world’s first semiconductor-based DNA sequencing technology, directly translating chemical information into digital data. DNA sequencing is performed with all natural nucleotides on Ion’s proprietary semiconductor chips, leveraging a billion years of evolution and a trillion dollars of investment to allow unprecedented scalability, speed, and costs according to Moore’s Law. Because Ion Torrent technology doesn't use light, it vastly reduces the cost and time of sequencing while still delivering next-generation sequencing throughputs. This may democratize the field of next-generation sequencing and have important implications for clinical, diagnostic, and research applications in which speed is of paramount significance.
