Proteomics Start-up Finds Home in Pittsburgh Incubator

NEW YORK, March 4 (GenomeWeb News) - Proteomics start-up ProteoPure is one of four new tenants to move into the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse, the Pennsylvania-based incubator said today.


ProteoPure, which was spun out of CarnegieMellonUniversity, has developed a technology that enables researchers to increase the number of proteins that can be separated and purified for diagnostic and drug-discovery applications. It was founded by LaunchCyte, a two-year old company that "creates, seeds, and harvests" life science companies.

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.
