Researchers from the US, UK, and Germany used chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing to identify and begin characterizing transcription factor binding variability in humans and yeast.

The application, owned by Stanford University and exclusively licensed to Regulus, claims methods of antagonizing miR-181a to regulate immune response.

The company's early access-program for its SmartChip system includes eight new university and corporate customers.

The early-access agreements provide Wafergen with an undisclosed amount of revenue, and are expected to help validate the SmartChip platform prior to its planned launch later this year.

A Stanford University-led research team used short-, long-, and paired-end RNA sequencing to study transcriptome dynamics during the transition from human embryonic stem cells to differentiated neural cells.

Stanford University researcher Uta Francke took attendees through a host of issues related to the concept of the human genome as personal property at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting this weekend.

In a proof-of-concept study published last week in PLoS One, the method, called 3'-end sequencing for expression quantification, or 3SEQ, performed much better than microarrays in profiling gene expression in FFPE tumor samples.

GenomeWeb reports that Veritas Genetics is suspending its US operations.

A Brazilian-led team of researchers reports it has generated a sugarcane genome assembly that encompasses more than 99 percent of its genome.

Certain plasma proteins could be used to gauge a person's age and whether they are aging well, according to HealthDay News.

In Science this week: approach to measure microRNA targeting efficiency, strategy to conduct high-throughput chemical screens at single-cell resolution, and more.
