Whole Genome Single-Cell Measurement of Structural Variation

Thursday 02 September 2021 | 16:00 BST (UTC+1)

Directional Genomic Hybridization (dGH) is a single-cell, analytical platform used by researchers and drug developers to help bolster the safety profiles of their therapeutic candidates. This presentation will focus on the latest iteration of this technology, dGH SCREEN. SCREEN can be used to track structural rearrangements throughout the genome that are difficult or impossible to track with sequencing, with an order of magnitude improvement in resolution over G-Banding.  

  • dGH SCREEN is a new cytogenetic analytical technique with an order of magnitude improvement in resolution over G-Banding.
  • dGH SCREEN has already found previously unknown rearrangements in the most sequenced genome on earth. 
  • dGH SCREEN can be used to monitor effects of cellular engineering processes on genomic stability.


ERIN CROSS, Associate Director of Whole Genome R&D at KromaTiD

Erin Cross is the lead development scientist for whole genome research at KromaTiD. As one of its first employees, she has pioneered KromaTiD’s flagship technology, directional Genomic Hybridizaiton, for the use of unbiased, single-cell assessments of genomic structural rearrangements. With over ten years of experience in molecular biology, virology, and genetics, she has helped lead KromaTiD to the forefront of cytogenetic and cellular engineering research.

CHRIS TOMPKINS, Chief Technology Officer at KromaTiD

With over 25 years of experience developing and launching biotechnology, diagnostic and pharmaceutical products, Dr. Tompkins serves as KromaTiD’s Chief Technology Officer where he leads the teams launching KromaTiD’s genomic structural products and services for Gene Editing and Gene Therapy.
