Mass Spec

News on mass spectrometry technology and applications in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

However, a shift within the field towards experiments comprising larger numbers of samples and conditions may give DIA an advantage in the future.

In a recent study, researchers combined genomic and proteomic data to identify mutations responsible for a pair of rare monogenic neutrophil diseases.

The study made use of a high-resolution mass spec approach developed by University of Minnesota scientists that allows for untargeted discovery of DNA adducts.

The company reported revenues of $553.6 million, up from $530.5 million in Q4 2017, and beating the average analyst estimate of $544.6 million.

The approach allows researchers to profile the protein complexes present in a sample in much the same way they have the individual peptides and proteins.

Thermo Fisher Scientific says it will no longer sell machines in China's Xinjiang region, according to the Wall Street Journal.

New Scientist reports that 20 percent of human and yeast proteins are uncharacterized.

The University of Zurich's Ruedi Aebersold and his colleagues analyzed a dozen HeLa cell lines to find differences in gene expression, protein levels, and more.
