The firm is aiming to create pan-organ transplant services that connect patients to doctors throughout the transplant and recovery process.
Jumpcode Genomics has launched two new kits for ribosomal RNA depletion. The CRISPRclean Stranded Total RNA Prep kit with rRNA depletion offers unbiased depletion and library preparation for RNA sequencing. The CRISPRclean Plus kit depletes over 200 bacteria species and human rRNA sequences to enable identification of lower-expressed transcripts.
The director of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History has been demoted after an internal investigation uncovered evidence of workplace misconduct and bullying.
The measures are legally binding for both Illumina and Grail, and compliance with them will be monitored by a trustee to be approved by the commission.
The NIH and grant recipient EcoHealth Alliance are at odds about how the latter reported and handled a potentially high-risk coronavirus study funded by the agency, the WSJ reports.
The test uses RT-LAMP and lateral flow strip technologies to detect the SARS-CoV-2 ORF1ab gene in anterior nasal swabs.
