seqWell, a worldwide supplier of next-generation sequencing (NGS) library applied sciences based mostly on its proprietary plexWell™ multiplexing platform, as we speak introduced a partnership with California Conservation Genomics Challenge (CCGP). CCGP, a state-funded initiative led by The College of California aiming to provide essentially the most complete, multispecies, genomic dataset ever assembled to assist handle regional biodiversity, has chosen seqWell’s NGS library preparation applied sciences to scale and speed up its genomics analysis, while offering financial savings in time, price and plastic-use. Each companions will describe the initiative and its progress to-date, at the moment in Section 2 (information era) in an upcoming webinar on 11th Could, 12:00 PDT, ‘Conserving California: Making use of Complete Genome Sequencing within the CCGP’.
Starting in 2019, CCGP has introduced collectively a consortium of over 100 consultants engaged on the interface of genomics and conservation science to provide a complete genomic information set to assist handle regional biodiversity. The info might be used to develop genomic maps of California visualizing such options as genomic variation and local weather resilient hotspots. In the end, the data will affect land use administration and conservation actions, supporting creation of strategic conservation plans to make sure the inhabitants, environments and wildlife are resilient to local weather change.
seqWell’s plexWell library preparation protocol permits pattern pooling after the primary enzymatic step, minimizing pipetting steps and decreasing the variety of tubes dealt with, all whereas creating balanced library swimming pools. As a part of the collaboration, customized protocols have been developed to make sure the enter is accessible throughout the breadth of taxonomic teams and ages of samples sequenced. Moreover, the protocol optimizations permit the group to expedite and automate library preparation, growing pattern throughput and decreasing errors.
We’re happy to be collaborating with CCGP on their undertaking to make the most of entire genome sequencing expertise to sequence 22,000 particular person crops and animals. The choice of our plexWell expertise by such a prestigious educational establishment demonstrates the worth the expertise we’ve developed can deliver by expediting the workflows on such an essential undertaking.”

Dr Erin Toffelmier, Affiliate Director, CCGP, College of California, commented: “seqWell’s modern NGS library preparation applied sciences are instrumental to our progress, and are already taking part in a significant function in expediting sequencing efforts. The customized protocol and package configuration supplied by seqWell is permitting us to essentially velocity up the variety of samples we’re processing which helps us obtain our objective of constructing essentially the most complete genomic dataset ever assembled for conservation science. To additional assist this, we’re at the moment recruiting for a laboratory technician to hitch the CCGP Mini-Core.”
