Cytognomix receives new US Patent

US patent (8,209,129) was issued today on Single Copy DNA probes that include divergent repetitive sequences, thus extending the portions of the genome that can be used for such probes beyond traditional single copy sequences. The technology also increases the density of genomic DNA probes for higher resolution genetic analysis beyond what is used in FISH, genomic microarrays for array comparative genomic hybridization, and solution capture hybrdization arrays for sequence enrichment in deep sequencing. The patent has been licensed to Cytognomix.
