Epoch Biosciences, Glen Research, Eurogentec


Epoch Biosciences, a Seattle-based reagent supplier, has signed two agreements to make its DNA probe reagents more widely available in Europe and the US. Glen Research of Sterling, Va., will distribute Epoch’s Redmond Red and Yakima Yellow fluorphores, Eclipse Non-Fluorescent Quencher, and PPG modified base. Under the agreement, Glen can repackage Epoch’s components into package sizes suitable for purchase by oligonucleotide synthesis facilities.

In a second agreement, Eurogentec of Liege, Belgium, will use Yakima Yellow dye and Eclipse Non-Fluorescent Quencher in production of its custom oligonucleo-tides for sale in Europe and in Japan, through its Japanese distributor Nippon Gene.

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.
