A large genome-wide association meta-analysis and follow-up analyses revealed eight risk loci involving SNPs previously associated with body traits, metabolism, and psychiatric risk.

The firm will work with investigators from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Virginia to validate its AIR system in CRISPR workflows.

The partners will evaluate patients' responses to immunotherapeutic drugs, including PD-1 and PDL-1 inhibitors, based on bladder cancer subtypes.

In adults and children with Crohn's, miR-31 was found at higher levels in gut tissue, and the cases marked by lower expression tended to have poorer outcomes.

Cells that express genes linked to greater proliferation potential are more likely to downregulate the HIV provirus, according to a new study.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's technology is based on set of patient-cell derived gene signatures for classifying four pancreatic subtypes.

Researchers developed a k-mer-based classification scheme to assay lncRNA function, identifying cis-repressive lncRNAs with k-mer features resembling Xist.

Researchers found that the diverse features in mixed phenotype acute leukemia may stem from early blood progenitor mutations.

The assay will combine the company's CytoSort assay with its automated AIR system for imaging, sorting, and isolating single cells and small colonies.
