NRGene has signed a co-marketing agreement with Illumina to promote NRGene’s proprietary de novo assembly informatics solution exclusively using Illumina sequencing technology. Under this agreement, Illumina’s global sales channel will promote NRGene’s DeNovoMAGICTM assembly technology.

Together, Illumina’s sequencing technology and NRGene’s DeNovoMAGIC deliver the most practical, rapid, and cost-effective solution for assembly of complex genomes, including the largest and most diverse crop, livestock and aquaculture species.

“Combining our technologies provides a remarkably dynamic solution for our customers in support of their research to develop healthier and more productive crops,” said Gil Ronen, NRGene’s CEO. “After our previous, highly successful collaboration, the value of this partnership to our customers and our respective companies was clear.”

Based only on Illumina short reads, NRGene has assembled some of the most complex genomic sequences available, including various lines of wheat, maize, soy, forestry and fruit trees, fish, and other organisms.

“We’re very happy to take our work with Illumina to the next level. The combination of our technologies will truly accelerate research aimed at food security. We’ve proven that even the most challenging genome assembly projects can be successfully and quickly delivered using exclusively Illumina’s short-read technology and the NRGene algorithms. This agreement extends customer’s access to the best sequencing and assembly package available and will expand the list of crop, livestock and aquaculture species with high-quality reference genomes,” concluded Ronen.
