NIH Library to Use GeneGo Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GeneGo said today that the National Institutes of Health's Library at Bethesda, Md., will use its Metacore software in its research programs.

The NIH Library will make the technology available to NIH staff for pathway analysis and data mining research queries. The software has tools for analysis of data from gene expression, proteomic, and microRNA assay data, as well as for biomarker studies.

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.

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.
