Using a transposon library and massively parallel sequencing, researchers from HHMI and Tufts University have developed a technique for identifying essential genes and mapping genetic interactions in Streptococcus pneumoniae.

For nearly a quarter of a century, David Walt's laboratory at Tufts University has been applying micro- and nanotechnology to interrogate single molecules, analyze genetic variation, and investigate the contents and behavior of single cells. BioArray News spoke recently with Walt, co-founder and scientific advisory board chair of Illumina and Quanterix, about those activities.
