Illumina continues critical work in human genomics

Working at the cutting edge of science and medicine, Marshall, Gerstein & Borun's client, Illumina, Inc., created its Genome Analyzer, HiSeq, and MiSeq instruments to sequence DNA at extremely high speeds. When Life Technologies Corp. claimed that the sequencers infringed three of its DNA amplification patents, Marshall Gerstein's trial attorneys led a three-year defense of Illumina. Ultimately, the district court granted our motion for summary judgment disposing of the infringement claims, later affirming its ruling on Life Technologies’ motion for reconsideration. As a result, Illumina can continue with its critical work in the field of human genomics.
