Two recent studies confirm that CRISPR/Cas9 can edit and inhibit latent HIV provirus, but one of them hints that the virus can develop resistance to excision.
Researchers used viral repertoire sequencing to characterize an early-stage HIV-neutralizing antibody, an important step toward developing a vaccine.
The firm's dual assay for host antigen to HIV as well as viral RNA was described in a proof-of-principle study earlier this year.
The company'sExatype software is a web-based solution for locating HIV drug resistance mutations using raw NGS data and other functional information.
The firm has improved design of the system for low-resource settings and validated it on clinical chlamydia samples and extracted HIV, Ebola, and dengue samples.
The companies will work to develop an affordable, portable, and easy-to-use HIV quantitative viral load test using Cue's Lab-In-A-Box MDx platform.
In a pilot study involving 230 HIV-infected patients, the researchers tested the implementation of privacy-preserving genetic testing, using homomorphic encryption.
The Collaborative African Genomics Network recently finished its second year of grant funding, hitting many of its milestones, and is already digging into the work for their third year.
The test, part of a planned menu expansion, runs on the integrated, automated Roche Cobas 6800 and 8800 platforms.
The funding will support research into epigenomic or ncRNA regulatory mechanisms in HIV/AIDS infection in the context of substance abuse and addiction.
The New York City Police Department will be removing DNA profiles from a local database if they are from people who were never convicted of a crime, the New York Times reports.
Science reports that accusations of sexual assault against a microbiome researcher has also led to questions about his academic certifications.
Wired reports that researchers are analyzing the DNA fish leave behind in water to study their populations.
