Success Story

Penn Engineer invents DNA sequencing and SNP detection technology

Arjun Raj, PhD, Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering, was named as an inventor on an issued patent for technology that captures an innovative method to detect Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and changes to a single DNA base pair in a genetic sequence, that overcomes traditional off-target binding associated with previous approaches. The technology has been licensed to LCG Biosearch for use in their genomic analysis business and has broad-reaching applications in the fields of microscopy, genetic counseling and medicine.
