JMP Genomics 3.0 users can perform principal components analysis on SNP data sets to visually identify sample groupings. SAS said that version 3.0 can support “very large whole-genome association studies and new SNP-SNP and SNP-trait interaction discovery capabilities.”

Kreatech Biotechnology this week launched its miRacULS Low Input miRNA Isolation and Labeling Kit. The Dutch reagents firm said the kit isolates miRNA from tissue or cultured cells and provides the reagents necessary to label these samples for microarray analysis.
The miRacULS II Kit is available with the ULS labeling molecule bound to Cy3 and Cy5 dyes licensed from GE Healthcare. The kit also includes the firm’s Kreapure purification columns, which specifically remove the unreacted ULS reagent from the labeling reaction but have no affinity for nucleic acids, the company said.
SAS last week launched JMP Genomics 3.0, a software tool with capabilities for predictive modeling and whole-genome SNP analysis. According to SAS, JMP Genomics 3.0 also features 3D graphics and the ability to distill research findings from large volumes of data.
