Sequenom Sells MassARRAY Tool to Livestock-Genetics Firm GeneSeek

NEW YORK, Aug. 26 - Sequenom has sold one of its MassARRAY tools to animal-genetics company GeneSeek to help it scan livestock, the companies said today.


GeneSeek, based in Lincoln, Neb., will use the technology to perform trait testing, viral and bacterial identification, parentage analysis, and "identity matching," which tracks meat through the production chain, the companies said.

The Scan

Study Examines Insights Gained by Adjunct Trio RNA Sequencing in Complex Pediatric Disease Cases

Researchers in AJHG explore the diagnostic utility of adding parent-child RNA-seq to genome sequencing in dozens of families with complex, undiagnosed genetic disease.

Clinical Genomic Lab Survey Looks at Workforce Needs

Investigators use a survey approach in Genetics in Medicine Open to assess technologist applications, retention, and workforce gaps at molecular genetics and clinical cytogenetics labs in the US.

Study Considers Gene Regulatory Features Available by Sequence-Based Modeling

Investigators in Genome Biology set sequence-based models against observational and perturbation assay data, finding distal enhancer models lag behind promoter predictions.

Genetic Testing Approach Explores Origins of Blastocyst Aneuploidy

Investigators in AJHG distinguish between aneuploidy events related to meiotic missegregation in haploid cells and those involving post-zygotic mitotic errors and mosaicism.
