A Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) developed by Indian scientists may ease finding organ donars

A team of Indian Scientists from National Center for Biological Research, Foundation for Revitalisation of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT), Bangalore Medical Services Trust (BMST) and Pacific Biosciences have developed a next-generation sequencing method to sequence HLA genes present on white blood cells, that play a major role in organ transplantation; to help build a database which could provide thorough information about the potential organ donars available.
