ThreatSEQ™ DNA Screening Web Service
Quick, accurate detection of DNA sequences of concern in a concise report
Using advanced algorithms and thousands of threat-specific sequence data, the ThreatSEQ web service quickly and accurately detects DNA sequences of concern and provides the information in a concise report.
This technology gives the synthetic biology industry a powerful new resource to reduce the risk that dangerous organisms will be created through gene synthesis, accidentally or deliberately.
For the Gene Synthesis Industry
ThreatSEQ DNA screening web service offers gene synthesis companies an alternative to the current semi-manual and subjective DNA screening options, empowering them to make faster, better decisions to protect themselves, their clients and society from potential biosecurity risks while keeping costs manageable.
ThreatSEQ web service provides an easy-to-understand report that flags each identified sequence of concern and characterizes the potential hazard associated with the sequence. The reports provides the reviewer with actionable information to easily determine the threat level of a sequence and understand the rationale behind the threat determination.
Building on more than a decade of biodefense expertise and genomic data collection and analysis, ThreatSEQ was named a recipient of a 2018 R&D 100 Award—further enhancing Battelle’s position at the forefront of
innovation for biosecurity.
Twist Bioscience has announced that it is the first to implement Battelle’s ThreatSEQ DNA screening web service for the detection and characterization of sequences of concern in genomic data, supplementing its internal biosecurity efforts.
