Starting Up Again

ScienceInsider reports that some risky flu studies that came to a halt a few years back may soon resume.

In PNAS this week: blood plasma lipidome analysis of Ebola patients, genome organization of the malaria-causing parasite, and more.

Researchers prioritized schizophrenia risk SNPs from genome-wide association studies and used functional genomics to find transcription factor-disrupting risk SNPs.

In Science this week: discussion of combining immunotherapies with targeted treatments, and more.

Researchers used exome capture RNA sequencing to come up with a collection of circRNAs in dozens of cancer types, including proposed prostate cancer markers.

In Nature this week: new CRISPR nuclease described, gut bacteria reference, and more.

Based on the results, the UAE-based lab would become Biocept's first customer to use the kits clinically, accepting samples from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.

Two independent teams described potential roles for gut microbes, and the compounds they produce, in schizophrenia, depression, and mental quality of life.

The company said the financing will further support its strategy of translating its genome editing platforms into potential therapeutics and drug-discovery solutions.

The test uses multiplex PCR fragment analysis with Promega-designed five-mononucleotide repeat markers to detect the MSI-high phenotype within tumor tissues.
