Michael Quail

Principal Scientific Manager of DNA Pipelines, Wellcome Sanger Institute

 “The newer Arima kits are being used because we found them to be robust across a range of tissue types from diverse vertebrate and invertebrate species. Kit robustness to a diversity of samples is an essential requirement for the Darwin Tree of Life Project.” 

Gene Myers, PhD

G10K Council Member and Director at Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden
“Arima Genomics is an integral technology partner of the G10K consortium and Phase I of the VGP project. Arima was selected for Phase I based on the quality of their data, proven by their ability to generate reproducible and high-quality data despite variability in input sample quality and quantity. The long-range genomic interactions from Arima-HiC data is an essential component of our current strategy for the generation of chromosome-spanning reference assemblies.”

Phil Ewels

Head of the Genomics Applications Development, SciLifeLab
“The Arima HiC kit has worked well in our testing and provided excellent quality genome scaffolds at extremely low sequencing depths. The Arima support team have been very knowledgeable and extremely quick to respond.”
