Two researchers devised a protocol to sequence DNA from ancient samples and tested it on 100-year-old museum specimens.

The organizations in the consortium will identify, characterize, and catalog human biological molecules affected by physical activity in volunteer biosamples.

LSU Health New Orleans and OmniSeq will collaborate to offer next-generation sequencing-based tumor profiling services to the institution's oncologists.

Researchers used thousands of conserved sequences for more than 100 songbird species to reconstruct their diversification and historical expansion route.

The partners will provide comprehensive clinical genomic testing for tumor profiling and inherited genetic disease at LSU Health New Orleans' Precision Medicine Program.

Aiming to improve upon existing bone-growth agents, a team from Louisiana State University is developing a light-activated nanoparticle for the targeted delivery of microRNA mimics involved in bone and blood vessel growth.

US patents awarded to Gen-Probe, Life Genetics, Louisiana State University, Agilent, and Roche/454 Life Sciences.

The $2.4 million grant will fund an international effort to study drought-related gene interaction networks.
