Scientists are using sequencing to identify resistance genes and piece together the evolution of a pathogen's genome.

In PLOS this week: omic characterization of aggressive rice blast pathogen strain, genomic assessment of Mycobacterium ulcerans in Ghana, and more.

The fourth quarter revenue growth resulted from an increase in its Atlas instrument placements, as well as an increase in the commercial use of the instrument. 

Scientists from Edgewood Chemical Biological Center and Signature Science published the study this week in GigaScience.

The company, which recently won a CDC challenge, can perform metagenomic identification of pathogens and is building strain-typing capabilities for its platform. 

The research provided novel insights into some well-known antibiotic resistance-related genes and implicated some less-characterized genes in the development of resistance.

The contract is to further the company's work to develop methodologies aimed at Francisella tularensis, Escherichia coli, and Babesia microti.

The partners will collaborate to develop and validate a high-throughput DNA microarray-based detection system to monitor foodborne bacteria and viruses. 

The assay is now approved for testing composited samples of ground beef.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – New Zealand Medical and Scientific will distribute Invisible Sentinel's Veriflow assays in New Zealand under an agreement announced today.
