GenomeWeb News reports that genome sequencing company Complete Genomics is cutting costs in the lead-up to the commercial launch of its whole-genome sequencing service in June: In order to save its remaining cash, the company recently implemented “a variety of cost-saving measures,” including “some reductions” in the salaries of its employees and a trimming of…

I discussed the second-generation sequencing company Complete Genomics a couple of weeks ago (see here and here). These guys are unique in that they offer their technology only as a service, rather than the usual business model of selling platforms to genomics facilities, and a highly restricted service at that: Complete has stated fairly categorically…

I wrote last week about the dramatic presentation here at  AGBT by Clifford Reid, CEO of new DNA sequencing company Complete Genomics. Reid made grand promises – entire human genome sequencing for $5000 available this year, and the sequencing of a million complete human genomes within the next five years – and presented some impressive…

Regular readers will know that I’m at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) meeting this week, one of the most highly-awaited meetings on the genomics calendar. There’s a huge amount of fascinating data being presented (anyone interested in a blow-by-blow account should follow Anthony Fejes’ live-blogging), but there’s definitely an overarching theme: the…

Complete Genomics is a DNA sequencing company that launched back in October, and has been creating a buzz in the genomics community ever since. The company’s business model is based around a novel technology for rapidly generating DNA sequence data; but rather than make its money by selling its platform to genomics facilities and biotech…
