Lack of Codes

An analysis of biology conferences appearing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds that few have codes of conduct.

The company believes it can provide tests to predict patients' responsiveness to specific drugs akin to the molecular diagnostics that have now swelled the oncology space.

The nanopore ZMW can enable lower starting amounts of DNA for PacBio sequencing, and may eventually enable direct RNA sequencing.  

The grants are provided through the NSF's Early Concept Grants for Exploratory Research program in partnership with the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

The funding is part of the NHGRI Genome Technology Program, which promotes new methods, technology, and instruments for sequencing and functional genomics.

Researchers have developed a mathematical framework for forming disease modules based on protein interaction profiles and GWAS data.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers at Northeastern University have developed an optical method for recording ion current changes by DNA travelling through a solid-state nanopore.

A Northeastern University-led team has found that nanopores made of hafnium oxide slow down the passage of DNA and are very stable, making them a promising material for solid-state nanopore sequencing and other biosensor applications.

Industry experts are questioning the scientific claims of a study published recently in

Researchers from Northeastern University and Pacific Biosciences plan to use an $825,000, three-year grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute to reduce the DNA input requirements and cost of PacBio's sequencing technology.
