Under the terms of the agreement, Twist Bioscience will manufacture synthetic DNA up to 3.2 kilobases in length to Synbio Technologies, who will then create genes up to 70 kilobases in length.
The DPB1 ambiguities are due to a lack of phasing between exons 2 and 3 (large intron 2, about 4 kilobases [kb]) or the nonsequenced exon 1 (533 alleles).
Nowadays chromosomal microarray analysis give the opportunity to detect the aberrations limited to kilobases rather than megabases and also accompanying by important challenges the other advances molecular test like next-generation sequencing can offer more detailed prenatal analysis.
