Qiagen to Supply siRNA to Novartis

NEW YORK, Aug. 4 (GenomeWeb News) - Qiagen said today that it has entered an agreement to supply a genome-wide siRNA library to Novartis.


Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


Qiagen uses a proprietary chemistry it picked up in its April, 2002, acquisition of Xeragon to synthesize siRNA molecules.

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.
