Nonlinear Dynamics, Genedata to Integrate Informatics Tools

NEW YORK, Oct. 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Nonlinear Dynamics and Genedata plan to create "a more integrated workflow" between their Progenesis and Expressionist products, the companies said today.


The alliance, which Genedata said will help it buttress its proteomics research play, aims to create a product with "additional result validation preceding the final MS identification and sample classification stages of the gel-based workflow."


By employing supplementary statistical processing to Progenesis 2D gel image-analysis data, researchers are able to further corroborate findings and proceed to spot picking with greater confidence, the companies said. "By automating the exchange of data between Progenesis and Expressionist, we are providing a high-throughput workflow for this otherwise time-consuming and error-prone task."

The Scan

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.
