Roche Secures DNA-Sequencing License

Department: Business

Roche has licensed technology developed by collaborators Stuart Lindsay of Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute and Colin Nuckolls of the Columbia University Nanoscience Center. Roche will use the DNA-reading technology to build on work its 454 Life Sciences business has been doing with IBM to develop a single-molecule nanopore DNA sequencer. The scientists’ method eliminates the need to use chemical reagents. Roche and IBM hope to create a system that can decode an individual’s genome for less than $1,000.
