Lynx and the University of Delaware in Research Collaboration on Rice

NEW YORK, Nov. 12 (GenomeWeb News) -- Lynx Therapeutics and the University of Delaware today announced a collaborative research agreement to characterize gene expression patterns in rice.

 

Lynx will receive payments for discovery services conducted on its MPSS (massively parallel signature sequencing) platform. The research is funded through a four-year grant from the US National Science Foundation.

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.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
