The first blood virological profile of the Chinese population was created in October 2022 by BGI Group, Ruijin Hospital, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University Institute of Translational Medicine using BGI's DNBSEQ sequencing platform. This analysis involved a thorough examination of non-human genetic sequences in the whole genome sequencing (WGS) data of about 10,584 individuals from the China Metabolic Analysis Program (ChinaMAP). The findings, which were published in the journal Cell Discovery, serve as a resource for viral infection epidemiology and prevention.
The SEQuoia RiboDepletion Kit, which increases test efficiency by removing pointless ribosomal RNA (rRNA) fragments from an RNA-Seq library, has been introduced by Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., a world leader in life science research and clinical diagnostic products.
