The Irvine, California-based firm said its "Revolution" system offer recovery rates of 70 to 90 percent across a wide range of liquid sample volumes.
CareDx will use NanoString's new Human Organ Transplant panel to develop HistoMap, a gene expression profiling test to identify allograft rejection.
Researchers linked 16 genetic loci to diabetic kidney disease, including a common missense mutation in the COL4A3 gene that appears to be protective.
The award will fund optimization of the Hemopurifier exosome isolator, with an eye towards developing applications in cancer research and clinical care.
The researchers believe that combining liquid and tissue biopsy can improve diagnostic and therapeutic options for cancer patients with acquired drug resistance mutations.
The team found that base editors that exhibit RNA off-target editing can also self-edit their own transcripts, leading to heterogeneity in their coding sequences.
Researchers identified five loci that were overrepresented in individuals with past, self-reported same-sex sexual behavior, though the associations were complex.
The program, launched last year, is designed to help early-career investigators who have primarily worked within groups pursuing independent research.
Using single-cell RNA-seq and other approaches, researchers looked at the four known medulloblastoma subtypes and the brain cell types from which they arise.
A proof-of-principle study suggests metabolite clusters may differ in non-small cell lung cancer patients depending on tumor type, disease stage, and overall survival trajectory.
23andMe has a holiday popup shop at a mall and could open additional stores, Bloomberg reports.
By studying koalas and a retrovirus that infects them, researchers may have uncovered a new sort of 'immune response' that occurs at the genomic level, Agence France Presse reports.
NPR reports that the first person in the US given a gene editing-based therapy for a genetic disorder is heading home.
