U. of Southern California Researchers to Use Molecular Staging s Amplification Technology

NEW YORK, March 18 (GenomeWeb News) - Researchers at the University of Southern California will use Molecular Staging's DNA amplification technology in cancer research, the company said today.

 

Scientists led by Brian Henderson are studying over 4,000 cancer patient samples and will use Molecular Staging's Repli-g whole genome amplification technology to increase the amount of DNA available for their research, according to the company.

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.
