Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are among those pushing ion mobility spectrometry as a tool to boost complex biological sample analysis.

A new study suggests that EGFR and MAPK protein abundance is the same across cell lines, while the adaptor proteins vary in number.

Researchers also uncovered key pathways and alterations linked to differences in survival.

The organizations will create an integrated omics laboratory to investigate disease biomarkers for new drug therapies.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In a paper appearing online today in Science, researchers from the University of California at Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory described the slew of microbes that the

A team led by researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a mass spec-based workflow for global analysis of O-linked N-acetylglucosamine, or O-GlcNAc, protein modification.

The new center for Systems and Translational Research on Infectious Disease expects to expand its roster by more than 20 scientists over the next 12 months, according to its research manager.

The approach could be a breakthrough in the identification of new species with applications in both the bioremediation and environmental arenas, as well as in the clinic, said the first author of a study describing the method.

The study is the first to look at a clinical biomarker to assess potential ecological risk assessment. Eventually, they hope to develop an assay that hydropower operators can use to evaluate how their facilities may be affecting the survival of fish populations, especially those that may be endangered.
