NGS Business Division

NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) is the method of reading a genome by dividing it into many pieces, assembling the obtained sequence pieces and analyzing the sequence of the whole genome. There has been rapid progress in technologies related to NGS since its commercialization in year 2000, which has produced a large volume of genome information for use in research. Especially as the cost and time for genome analysis gradually decreased, demand for genome analysis for living organisms including humans increased rapidly. Recently clinical studies based on NGS are actively conducted, mostly in the medical field, and many studies are in progress to identify genetic variance and the functions of new genes. This will quicken the realization of precision medicine that can provide treatment optimized for each person based on the patient’s genome.

Macrogen produces a large amount of genome information every year using various kinds of equipment, provides quicker and more accurate genome analysis service at an economical price to help studies conducted by researchers, and offers a diagnostic service to the public. We provide genome analysis services suitable for research, such as whole genome, exome, transcriptome, epigenome and metagenome, and bioinformatics results based on the data. Offering a total genomic solution to researchers all over the world based on our extensive experiences and know-how accumulated over the years, Macrogen leads the field of precision medicine utilizing NGS technology.
