Two USC alumni, Joseph Dunham and Chris Angermayer, have founded SeqOnce, a company that could potentially change the field of next generation sequencing.
Next generation sequencing technologies allow for sequencing large amounts of DNA or RNA much more quickly and at lower cost than previous methods. These technologies have revolutionized genomics research and have enabled a multitude of new discoveries and applications that were previously not possible. Not only have they transformed the research and medical landscape, these technologies have powered the explosion in consumer genomics companies such as 23andme and Ancestry.com.
