ZS Genetics platform technology will have ultimate prominence as a future DNA sequencing technology; and thereby increasing throughput and decreasing cost such that personalized genetic medicine can be fully realized.
De novo genome assembly
The electron microscope-based DNA sequencing technology developed by ZS Genetics will rapidly sequence de novo genomes inexpensively.
The DNA sequencing long reads obtained by ZS Genetics technology makes haplotyping easier and more accurate, which is beneficial to the field of population genetics.
Copy number variants
ZS Genetics DNA sequencing long reads are especially useful for analyzing duplications or amplifications, as it is possible to analyze the orientation of the amplified segments if they are captured in a single sequencing read.
ZS Genetics technology allows longer reads that would provide a more accurate picture of copy number, orientation of amplified regions, and SNPs present in cancer genomes.
ZS Genetics technology will allow longer reads that would greatly facilitate the assembly of new microbial genomes.
