Twist Bioscience Launches Mouse Exome to Power Genetic Research

Jun 17, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 17, 2019-- Twist Bioscience Corporation (NASDAQ: TWST), a company enabling customers to succeed through its offering of high-quality synthetic DNA using its silicon platform, today announced the launch of the Twist Mouse Core Exome Panel, the most comprehensive, up-to-date tool for interrogation of the mouse exome, further enabling genetic research of this important model organism.

“We are pleased to launch our first next-generation sequencing (NGS) product for the research market, which can be used for very specific preclinical research for cancer and other genetic diseases,” said Emily M. Leproust, Ph.D., CEO and co-founder of Twist Bioscience. “We offer a variety of specific and custom target enrichment panels for NGS which we can update, iterate and customize quickly due to our proprietary silicon-based DNA synthesis platform. The Twist Mouse Core Exome Panel is our first non-human exome and allows us to reach not only core labs but also independent researchers and scientists.”

The mouse is an extremely important model system for studying genetic variation, tumor mutations, and phenotypic outcomes as well as the therapeutic effect of pharmaceutical agents. Twist’s mouse panel includes the most comprehensive, up-to-date content available. As genetic variant databases are continuously updated, the Twist Mouse Exome panel is thoughtfully designed and built from the most current databases. When combined with Twist's expanding portfolio of library preparation and enrichment reagents, the complete toolset allows researchers to achieve industry-leading coverage across target regions while optimizing sequencing cost and sample throughput.
