Talk
Advancing Speed, Versatility and Accuracy in NGS
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a foundational technology for biological research and clinical diagnostics. We present Singular Genomics’ latest advances in accelerating the time to results, reducing sample batching constraints, and increasing the accuracy of DNA sequencing.


 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley


Sequencing technologies are continuously improving, making it easier to obtain more in-depth molecular information than ever before. Emerging single-cell multi-omics sequencing technologies allow the capture of multiple modalities from a cell, including its epigenome, transcriptome, epitranscriptome, and proteome. This allows research into the heterogeneity of many biological mechanisms, and insights into complex molecular mechanisms that underpin disease.
