Quantabio SparQ RNA-Seq HMR Library Preparation Kit

Quantabio has launched the SparQ RNA-Seq HMR Kit, an ultra-fast RNA next-generation sequencing library preparation kit with integrated ribosomal RNA and globin mRNA depletion. Researchers can use the kit to generate stranded transcriptome libraries from FFPE or low-input human, mouse, or rat samples in five hours with little hands-on time. It is optimized for Illumina sequencing platforms and is available in 24- and 96-reaction configurations.

Machine Learning Helps ID Molecular Mechanisms of Pancreatic Islet Beta Cell Subtypes in Type 2 Diabetes

The approach helps overcome limitations of previous studies that had investigated the molecular mechanisms of pancreatic islet beta cells, the authors write in their Nature Genetics paper.

Culture-Based Methods, Shotgun Sequencing Reveal Transmission of Bifidobacterium Strains From Mothers to Infants

In a Nature Communications study, culture-based approaches along with shotgun sequencing give a better picture of the microbial strains transmitted from mothers to infants.

Microbial Communities Can Help Trees Adapt to Changing Climates

Tree seedlings that were inoculated with microbes from dry, warm, or cold sites could better survive drought, heat, and cold stress, according to a study in Science.

A Combination of Genetics and Environment Causes Cleft Lip

In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers investigate what combination of genetic and environmental factors come into play to cause cleft lip/palate.
