The group from Imperial College London's Hammersmith Hospital has developed a duplex qPCR assay that measures both BCR-ABL1 target and endogenous control transcripts in the same reaction with no loss of sensitivity compared to a previously used simplex test.

The lab will study how metabolic data can be used in the operating room at St. Mary's Hospital.

The government of Qatar will work with Imperial College London experts to start a large biobank with up to 100,000 donors.

Members of a European consortium reported that they have identified several new genetic variants that are associated with asthma, including some specifically linked to asthma diagnosed in childhood.

Using the genome-wide association approach, researchers with the International Meningococcal Genetics Consortium have identified susceptibility variants for meningococcal disease in genes coding for components of the complement immune system.

A genome-wide association study involving roughly 2,200 Swiss individuals argues against a role for common variants with major effects in the development of neurotic personality traits.

Based on genetic data on more than 500 Plasmodium falciparum isolates from around the world, an international research group has concluded that the malaria parasite likely migrated with humans from Africa around 60,000 to 80,000 years ago

By sequencing the spontaneously hypertensive rat genome and comparing it to the rat reference genome, researchers are gaining insights into the differences between the lab strains that may eventually help explain human hypertension.

In the second phase, 10 of 17 labs were able to generate gel images that fell within a 95-percent confidence level in an inter-laboratory study. As a result, the methods developed in both phases of the campaign, called Fixing Proteomics, now serve as standards by which proteomics researchers using 2D gels can benchmark themselves.

The international consortium led by Imperial College will screen genes and conduct GWAS for asthma influences.
