Share the webinar: "Long-read Sequencing of Human Transcription Provides Insight into Metastatic Cancer" bit.ly/2JpU4gX #LoopLongReadsPower to be entered into a drawing for free long-read sequencing of 8 samples.*
Loop's accurate long-read sequencing technology is delivering genomic and transcriptomic insight that can't be as easily, quickly, and cost-effectively obtained with any other methods. One example of the power of Loop long-reads was discussed by Jianhua Luo, MD PhD, Professor of Pathology and Director of the High Throughput Genome Center at the University of Pittsburgh, in a recent GenomeWeb webinar "Long-Read Sequencing of Human Transcription Provides Insights into Metastatic Cancer."
Dr. Luo used Loop's long-read technology to examine the transcriptome in matched sets of tumor tissue, neighboring normal tissue, and metastatic tissue from lymph nodes. Because Loop's technology enables full-length sequencing of individual transcripts, Dr. Luo was able to:
Find transcripts from fused genes that did not exist in the matched normal tissue
Use analysis of transcript isoforms to type cancers more effectively than genotyping
Discover that some SNPs can be transcript isoform-specific
We are very proud that our technology is enabling insights like those obtained by Dr. Luo and want to let more people know that accurate, full-length sequencing of transcripts exists and is very powerful. Please help us spread the word by sharing the webinar (bit.ly/2JpU4gX) on Twitter or LinkedIn with the hashtag #LoopLongReadsPower. Each person who shares the video or follows Loop Genomics will be entered into a drawing to win free long-read sequencing of 8 samples.*
*Drawing will be held on May 31, 2020. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. One winner will be chosen at random from those who have shared the webinar on LinkedIn or Twitter or who have started following Loop Genomics. The winner will be notified via direct message on the relevant platform.
