On the 11th of November, Rasmus Brøndum from Leymus Genomics will be presenting at the industry symposium for the Danish Microbiological Society congress in Copenhagen. He will be introducing an exciting new synthetic long-read sequencing technology that functions on existing short-read Illumina® sequencers. LoopSeq®, developed by Loop Genomics, is an innovative sequencing technology that provides previously inaccessible layers of information from Illumina®-generated sequences. This enables a wide variety of diverse sequencing applications, including sequencing of microbiomes, transcriptomes, targeted amplicons, and more.

Some of the benefits of LoopSeq® include:

  • Uses your existing Illumina sequencer – no extra instruments
  • Single-molecule sequencing
  • Multiplex single-tube workflow
  • Consensus error correction – error rates reduced 40x vs. standard short reads
  • Full isoform mapping for transcriptome research
  • True quantitative results due to transcript counting using UMIs and full-length reads
  • Better resolution on species and strain level for microbiome research

Come join us in Copenhagen in Eigtveds Pakhus for Rasmus’s presentation. The congress is an excellent opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with fellow researchers and companies.

Details are as follows:

Date: November 11

Time: Whole day event; Leymus will be presenting at 15:15–15:40 in Room 2 on the 2nd floor.

Location: Eigtveds Pakhus, Strandgade 25G, 1401 Copenhagen
