Farfield Sensors Wins UK Development Grant for its Ana Light Technology

NEW YORK, April 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Farfield Sensors of Manchester, UK, today announced it has received an small business research initiative grant for between £100,000 and £200,000 ($188,000 to $378,000) from the UK's Biotechnology and biological Sciences Research Council.

Farfield Sensors said it will use the funds to extend its Ana Light products, which use its dual polarization interferometry, an analytical technique used to examine the structure and behavior of molecular systems and interactions. The firm will conduct the project in collaboration with four members of ProteoGlycans North West, a group of 17 UK labs.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
