Codexis Announces License Agreement with Roche for Enzyme Used in Next Generation Sequencing
Library preparation is a critical first step in the NGS workflow and involves modifying nucleic acid samples using a coordinated series of enzymatic reactions to produce libraries of DNA fragments for high-throughput sequencing. The EvoT4TM DNA ligase was developed to improve the efficiency and speed of adapter ligation for challenging and low-input DNA samples, thereby improving NGS sensitivity and accuracy – both important attributes for sequencing applications.
“We are very excited to license our first product targeting this market to Roche Sequencing Solutions. This deal underscores our belief in genomic sequencing as an attractive commercial target for our company, and we look forward to future successful introductions of additional CodeEvolver®-derived innovations in this and other Life Science applications,” said
