Nabsys 2.0 LLC Key Developments

Nabsys Produces First Long-Range, Non-Optical Maps of Whole Human Genomes Using its High-Definition Electronic HD-Mapping Platform

Nabsys has produced the first long-range, non-optical maps of whole human genomes using its high-definition electronic HD-mapping platform. The maps have subsequently been used for genome-wide analysis of structural variants, DNA changes typically larger than several hundred base pairs which are implicated in a wide array of diseases. Structural variants are often difficult to identify (or "call") using traditional sequencing techniques, as the short reads generated often do not span the entire variant. While long-range optical mapping approaches enable long reads, their low resolution limits the ability to call variants. The ability to read longer segments of DNA at a higher resolution with the Nabsys HD-Mapping platform facilitates calling and analysis of variants over a wide range of sizes. Analysis of the Nabsys data demonstrates that this electronic mapping approach is extremely powerful for analysis of structural variation over a wide range of sizes. Electronic detection allows Nabsys to call with high sensitivity and specificity both large structural variants and smaller variants, the size of short reads from next-generation sequencing platforms. Creating the link between short-read data and long-range information will enable elucidation of the full range of genomic variation. This project was conducted in collaboration with the Genome in a Bottle (GIAB) consortium, a public-private-academic consortium hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop the technical infrastructure to enable translation of whole human genome analysis to clinical practice. Nabsys results were presented during a consortium meeting on September 15, 2016, held at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg MD. Nabsys structural variant calls are available to members of the GIAB consortium. Raw data are available to Nabsys collaborators.
