NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A genome sequencing study in Nature offered hints about genetic strategies organisms may use to maintain species diversity, even in the absence of sexual repr

July has proven to be a big month for microRNAs at the National Institutes of Health, which handed out more than $2.3 million in grants to fund research into both the basic science of the small, non-coding RNAs and their roles in various disease states.

A team led by Max Planck Institute researchers this week published a report linking a single microRNA — miR-802 — to obesity-related insulin resistance and type II diabetes.

At the end of June, the company anticipates launching its first test, for insulin-resistance, with prostate cancer tests targeted for the end of the year.

Research conducted under the five-year CRADA could lead to the development of a new blood test that predicts patients at risk for heart disease and metabolic syndrome. The collaboration could also lead to the development of new targeted drugs.
