Cyclomics announces publication on CyclomicsSeq technology

We are excited to announce the publication about Cyclomics’ core CyclomicsSeq technology in Genomic Medicine.  CyclomicsSeq technology involves a novel consensus sequencing approach fully optimised for circulating tumor DNA. The small size and low abundance of circulating tumor DNA in the blood of cancer patients makes accurate detection of cancer mutations difficult. Cyclomics has established a novel technology that enables efficient… Read More »Cyclomics announces publication on CyclomicsSeq technology
