Qiagen and NCI to Develop siRNAs for Cancer Research

NEW YORK, May 31 (GenomeWeb News) - Qiagen and the National Cancer Institute will co-develop and validate a set of siRNAs for cancer genes for use by NCI researchers, Qiagen said today.

 

The validated siRNA set will be made available to the general research community following the characterization project, Qiagen said.

 

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

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.
