Adam covers proteomics and life science mass spectrometry for GenomeWeb.
The Singapore-based firm plans to use its single-cell RNA and protein assay to help optimize the production of CAR T cells and guide their use in patients.
New instrument releases at this week's meeting reflected proteomics' increased emphasis on throughput and the continuing spread of ion mobility technology.
A recent pair of papers presenting deep learning approaches to mass spec proteomic data analysis build on several previous efforts to develop such methods.
The facility will be mass spec-focused and comprise a service contract lab for developing protein tests and a CAP- and CLIA-certified lab for offering them.
The startup will sell tools and services based on the Nucleic Acid Programmable Protein Array technology developed by Biodesign researcher Joshua LaBaer.
In work presented at the recent American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting, they found that T-cell cytokine production predicted patient response.
Roche ran a mock clinical trial in which it used DIA mass spec and targeted proteomics to profile 30 colorectal cancer samples under GCP conditions.
A study from the University of Montreal adds to findings indicating the approach can help reduce sample complexity and interferences in quantitative work.
The tool is the latest such package to be released as the field continues to move towards open searching, which could significantly expand breadth of analysis.
The work suggests DIA can be a rapid way to confirm the outcome of CRISPR experiments while looking at the downstream effects of the targeted alterations.
A letter criticizing actions by the US government and research institutions toward Chinese and Chinese-American scientists has garnered more than a hundred signatories.
NPR reports that researchers in New York are investigating whether it is possible to edit the genomes of human sperm.
In an opinion piece at the Nation, Sarah Lawrence College's Laura Hercher argues that everyone should be able to access prenatal genetic testing.
