Unique DNBSEQ™ Sequencing Technology

BGI's Human Whole Genome Sequencing services are typically executed with proprietary DNBSEQ™ sequencing technology platforms, for great sequencing data at some of the lowest costs in the industry. DNBSEQ™ is a proprietary sequencing technology, first developed by BGI's Complete Genomics subsidiary in Silicon Valley and can offer advantages in terms of lower amplification error rates and much lower duplication rates in WGS/WES applications. In addition, studies have shown the index hopping rate in DNBSEQ™ platforms can be much lower when compared to that of other platforms.
