NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PathoGenetix and the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service announced late on Monday the evaluation of PathoGenetix's technology for identifying strains of Shiga-toxin-producing E. coli, or STECs, and Salmonella enterica.

Researchers from Mars, Inc., the US Department of Agriculture's Agriculture Research Service, and IBM have sequenced the cacao genome and are making the data publicly available prior to publication.

The new integrated fluidic circuit, called the FR48, enables users to run 48 assays on 48 samples on Fluidigm's existing BioMark and EP1 instruments as well as a new instrument that was specially designed for the new chip. The company recommends that the reusable chip be used a maximum of five times for optimal performance.

A consortium supported in part by Roche Diagnostics is sequencing a genome that will serve as a model for other Rosaceae plants.

Using whole genome shotgun sequencing and fluorescence in situ hybridization, researchers from China and the US have developed a high-density genetic map for cucumber, which they say will aid in future genetic and genomic studies of the plant.
