Sage-N-Research Developing Software for Pressure BioSciences' Technology

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pressure BioSciences today announced a collaboration with Sage-N-Research to develop software for use with Pressure Bio's Pressure Cycling Technology.

The software will be developed on Sage-N-Research's Sorcerer Integrated Data Appliance platform. Richard Schumacher, president and CEO of Pressure Bio, said that the software will be offered as an option to stand-alone sample preparation and data reduction methods currently used by mass spectrometry laboratories.

"We believe that by bundling these enabling platforms, we will be offering a higher quality, more efficient, and less costly solution than they currently have for sample preparation and data reduction," he said in a statement."

Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Scan

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.
