- As short-read DNA sequencing platforms have dominated the NGS field since 2005, their price dropped considerably in time compared to advanced long-read technologies available today. Still, the short-read sequencing main disadvantage remained – the fragmented short reads.Recently, an emerging technology developed by Universal Sequencing Technology (UST) has completely changed the scope of what a short read sequencer can do. The UST’s TELL-Seq linked read library technology enables short-read sequencers to produce super long-read results (average 20kb to 100kb). It is a single tube process without using any long-read specific equipment. A sequencing ready library can be prepared within 3 hours, and it requires the least amount of DNA input, as low as 0.1-0.5ng for bacteria genomes and 3-5ng for human genomes.Massachusetts startup Universal Sequencing Technology (UST) was established in 2015 by a group of NGS technology veterans from Roche/454. UST is dedicated to developing the most advanced, cost-effective DNA sequencing technologies.
