Imperial College Institute Installs Syngene's Imaging System

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Imperial College London has installed Syngene’s gel-imaging system at its Institute of Biomedical Engineering to identify proteins linked with various human diseases, Syngene said this week.
Syngene, based in Cambridge, UK, said the Institute will use the Dyversity 2D system in a “wide array” of research tasks, including imaging 1D protein and DNA gels, and chemiluminescent blots stained with visible, fluorescent, and chemiluminescent dyes.
Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

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.
