Using genome sequences for 161 present-day Papuans and Island Southeast Asians, researchers described three Denisovan lineages and estimated divergence times between them.

Researchers used genomic and transcriptomic data of isolates from seven Southeast Asian countries to find resistance-relevant pathways and expression quantitative trait loci.

A research collaboration involving several universities has yielded a technique that they said isolates exosomes from biological samples more effectively than incumbent methods.

Two Khoisan genomes appear to show no genetic contributions from other human populations, suggesting that members of the group may have remained genetically isolated for up to 150,000 years.

Star Array, a spinout of Singapore's Nanyang Technological University, has developed a microfluidic liquid-phase nucleic acid purification chip that can selectively isolate DNA or RNA from low numbers of cells in minute sample volumes, and subsequently PCR amplify the purified nu
