Universal Sequencing Technology Corporation (UST) Releases "TELL-Seq Haplotype Phasing" App
CARLSBAD, Calif. - Aug. 2, 2022 - PRLog -- Universal Sequencing Technology Corporation (UST), announces today, August 2nd, 2022, that it has released "TELL-Seq Haplotype Phasing" App on Illumina Basespace™ Sequence Hub to further streamline and enable access to the TELL-Seq haplotype phasing workflow solution. This can effectively be used in broad research areas including genetic disease research, HLA haplotyping, complex variant linkage, and trait analysis.
UST's TELL-Seq technology, a transposase-
Dr. Aaron U. Levy, GM & Chief Commercial Officer of UST, stated that "TELL-Seq library technology is compatible with the range of Illumina sequencing platforms from benchtop like MiniSeq™ up to high-throughput NovaSeq™ 6000. The collaboration between UST and Illumina, based on the co-development and co-marketing agreement signed early 2021, is speeding up the adoption of UST's super long range TELL-Seq NGS library products among Illumina users, in the US and all over the world."
Dr. Dalia Daujotyte, Director of NGS Partnerships and Applications at Illumina, stated that "TELL-Seq linked read technology provides valuable solutions that enrich the Illumina ecosystem and we have been pleased to partner with UST."
To demonstrate the capabilities of the TELL-Seq phasing workflow and new BSSH app, UST and Illumina have co-developed and released the application note "Ultra-long range phasing with linked-read sequencing technology."
It has been demonstrated that TELL-Seq can phase the entire 4Mb major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region into two complete parental haplotypes (Chen et al, Genome Res. 2020 Jun;30(6):898-
According to Dr. Zhoutao (Tom) Chen, Chief Scientific Officer of UST, "With super long-range TELL-Seq library kit and an Illumina sequencer, one can now perform de novo sequencing (microbial genomes, metagenomics, animals/plants/

Dr. Ming Lei, Co-Founder and CEO of UST also added that " we are continuing to advance our technology and expand our product pipeline into multiple NGS application areas that require super long read. We will continue to partner with Illumina to support further expansion of Illumina sequencing platforms' applications, based on our co-development, co-marketing, and commercial agreement."
