Data Analysis Platform Speeds Up Gene Mapping3 years ago -
NRGene has mapped five novel complex maize genomes from the commercial, publicly available lines using its proprietary DeNovoMAGIC big data analysis platform.
Delivering results in under a week for each genome, DeNovoMAGIC has constructed very detailed and highly accurate assemblies, which have led to the discovery of new genes. Previous attempts at mapping took months and years. NRGene’s DeNovoMAGIC platform is proven to allow quick and accurate re-construction of reference genomes for even the most complex genomes such as maize.
“Global food scarcity means that plant geneticists and breeders must produce better seeds much faster,” says Gil Ronen, NRGene’s CEO. “Our genomic big data DeNovoMAGIC technology is already supporting them with the precise and relevant data required to boost their research toward gaining heartier yields.”
