WaferGen has launched the SmartChip Human microRNA Panel V2 for gene-expression profiling on its SmartChip Real-Time PCR System.

The panel enables profiling of 1,200 human microRNAs on a single chip, the company said.


Asuragen has introduced a new microRNA biofluids service that offers miRNA isolation and analysis from serum, plasma, cerebral spinal fluid, and urine.

“The ability to perform biomarker analysis from easily accessible and regenerative biofluid samples, in contrast to procuring invasive tissue biopsies, greatly facilitates sample collection and patient recruitment for clinical studies,” the company said.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
