MDxHealth SA and Ghent University Aim to Establish Sensitive and Cost-Effective Industry Standard for Genome-wide DNA methylation Profiling Tools
Mar 19 13
MDxHealth SA and Ghent University announced the results from a large, epigenetic next generation sequencing based study that establishes a sensitive and cost-effective industry standard for genome-wide DNA methylation profiling. This study is an early result of the NXTGNT Center in Pharmaco (Epi)genomics, a joint collaboration between MDxHealth and the Ghent University first announced in November 2012. Methyl Binding Domain (MBD)-based sequencing is currently the most cost-effective method for genome-wide identification of DNA methylation. Five commercially available kits for MBD enrichment, combined with Illumina-based next generation sequencing, were evaluated using inherent sequence data characteristics and most importantly, external validation data. Overall, the results obtained confirmed the need for quality control as the scientists found consistent large-scale differences in yield, sensitivity and specificity between the various kits.
Universiteit Gent and MDxHealth SA Collaborate to Establish Center in Pharmaco (Epi)genomics
Nov 30 12
MDxHealth SA announced that it has joined forces with the Universiteit Gent to establish NXTGNT, a new center in Pharmaco (Epi)genomics. The mission of the Center is to accelerate innovation in personalized medicine by using advanced technology, knowledge and expertise in (epi)genetics. The center will bring together scientific expertise from disease centered basic researchers, corresponding clinical validation teams, bioinformaticians, and cutting edge (epi)genomic technology focused on the discovery of effective individualized epigenetic-based diagnostic and personalized therapeutic products. As a result of several years of productive collaboration between the Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics (BIOBIX), NXTGNT (UGent genome analysis facility), the Biomarked valorization consortium teams and MDxHealth, the new Center is located at Ghent University within the laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology. The facility will house MDxHealth's research team and lab equipment for development of epigenetic tests together with the Ghent University team for (epi)genetic sequencing. The facility works in close collaboration with the Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics, located at the Faculty of BioEngeneering, providing extensive expertise in epigenetic characterization and computing and visualization of (epi)genomic datasets. The center is fully operational as off December 1, 2012.
