Lex Bird Breeding System published in Nature Genetics

Image: Arjan Haverkamp (via Wikipedia) The high quality genome assembly of a wild wading bird, the ruff Philomachus pugnax , generated by Edinburgh Genomics, has been used to reveal the genetics of a striking natural polymorphism affecting plumage, behaviour and mating success. The work is published today in Nature Genetics - DOI: 10.1038/ng.3443. Edinburgh Genomics collaborated closely with...

THE NEW GENOMIC WORLD OF WILD WORMS

Caenorhabditis elegans, affectionately referred to as “the worm,” is one of the prettiest and most informative of the model organisms. It is see-through, has a simple lifecycle and a remarkably simple anatomy, and it has been the foundation for many major discoveries. Indeed the worm —in collaboration with outstanding human scientists— has won several Nobel prizes. However, C. elegans is also...

New pricing structure

Ladies and Gentlemen, Since our recent announcement of a new pricing structure for Edinburgh Genomics, Illumina announced an above-inflation increase in their reagent pricing. We unfortunately have to pass a proportion of this increase on to users of our Illumina services. Our new prices will come into effect immediately and will be reflected in all future quotes. Please contact Helen Gunter, our...

Pricing changes at Edinburgh Genomics

Dear Colleagues Edinburgh Genomics has undergone a major reorganisation in the last few months, with the initiation of the new Clinical Genomics (aka HiSeqX) Division, and the consolidation of the activities of the Genome Science Division (all our non-whole human genome activities). After months of planning, the first HiSeqX instruments have been delivered to EG labs at the Roslin Institute, and...

Edinburgh Genomics takes delivery of its first two HiSeqX

As part of the Scottish Genome Partnership, Edinburgh Genomics has taken delivery of its first two HiSeqX sequencing machines. These are the first part of an installation of 15 state-of-the-art instruments, divided between The Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, which will push the sequencing of whole human genomes to a new level. Researchers will be able to study the genomes of both healthy...
