Warnex, Eppendorf to Collaborate on Food Safety Tests

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Warnex said last week that it has signed an agreement with Eppendorf to develop food safety tests that combine Warnex’s pathogen detection kits and software with Eppendorf’s Mastercycler ep realplex real-time PCR system.

Warnex said it will offer Eppendorf's Mastercycler ep realplex real-time PCR system as an additional platform for its proprietary pathogen tests.

Additional details of the arrangement were not disclosed.

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.
