Oxford Gene Technology this week launched its CytoSure Interpret software for the analysis of oligonucleotide array comparative genomic hybridization data.

The software includes an "accelerate" function for the automation of data analysis workflows. Users can customize other functions, such as normalization, aberration detection, and report generation. CytoSure Interpret also allows users to integrate results with legacy data, confirm probe information, and annotate tracks covering syndromes, genes, exons, copy number variants, and recombination hotspots. These tracks link to publicly available databases such as Decipher and the Database of Genomic Variants, OGT said.

RayBiotech has launched its Quantibody Human Cytokine Array 4000 for the quantitative expression profiling of 200 different proteins in an experiment.

The kit consists of five different quantitative multiplex enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay-based array slides: the Quantibody Human Inflammation Array 3 detects 40 inflammatory markers; the Quantibody Human Chemokine Array 1 detects 40 chemokines; the Quantibody Human Growth Factor Array 1 detects 40 growth factors; the Quantibody Human Receptor Array 1 detects 40 soluble cytokine receptors; and the Quantibody Human Cytokine Array 4 detects 40 cytokines and related proteins.

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.
