German Biotech Initiative Inaugurates Dresden Research Center

NEW YORK, May 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Biosaxony, a German government campaign designed to promote the biotechnology sector in Saxony, announced today the inauguration of the BioInnovation Center Dresden (BIOZ).

 

BIOZ is a 10,000 square meter biotechnology center designed to provide work space for both academic and industry researchers, primarily those focused on molecular bioengineering, cellular machines, functional genomics, and nano-biotechnology.

 

Already, BIOZ houses the biotech center of the Dresden University of Technology, Cenix BioScience, and Gene Bridges, among others, according to Biosaxony.

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

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.
