ABRF

Speakers at the Association for Biomolecular Resource Facilities annual meeting gave advice on preparing for and recovering from hurricanes.

At the Association of Biomolecular Research Facilities annual meeting this week, the ABRF Genomics Research Group presented results from its comparison of single-cell RNA sequencing platforms.

While DIA methods like Swath have seen rapid uptake in proteomics, some core labs have struggled to add these workflows to their fee-for-service offerings.

The consortium operates through the ABRF and is sampling microbes from gas-filled craters, high-salinity lakes, and the Alaskan permafrost, among other sites.  

At ABRF, a researcher from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute reported on an 'ecogenomic sensor' that collects ocean microbe samples for gene expression.

Metagenomic tools are shedding light on how microbes survive in and contribute to environments ranging from wetlands to natural oil seepage sites, according to presentations at this year's ABRF meeting.

Speakers at the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities annual meeting discussed their approaches for single-cell genomic studies of tumor and immune cells.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Protein Sequence Research Group of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities announced this week the availability of test samples for its 2015 study.
