Nearby towns include Oceanside, Encinitas, Del Mar, San Clemente, Escondido, and San Juan de Capistrano and nearby attractions include the Mission San Luis Rey and the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park. The average temperature is 64oF to 75oF year-round. More about USTUST is currently commercializing a disruptive NGS technology, the TELL-Seq library technology, that enables short read 2nd generation NGS platforms to produce super long read results. A sequencing ready DNA library can be made in a single PCR tube in 3 hours with very little DNA input, simple, fast and economic. It enables many previously unachievable or difficult-to-achieve applications, including de novo sequencing, haplotype phasing, metagenomics, SV detection, and clinical diagnostics for genetic and rare diseases and tumors.We are developing a new single-cell sequencing technology that can significantly reduces the cost of current single cell sequencing library preparation.We are developing a cutting-edge fifth generation DNA sequencing technology that can sequence a whole human genome in one hour with cost less than $100.Our mission is to advance DNA sequencing for all applications through innovation. Our goal is to make DNA sequencing accessible to all countries, rich or poor, and across all fields, especially in the clinical and healthcare fields, providing accurate and affordable means for disease diagnostics, effective tools for drug development, and reliable methods for health evaluation and epidemic disease identification and prevention.PI154143326
