NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — In an effort to improve the long-term storage of multiplex nucleic acid assays, a German academic group has developed a protocol for air drying PCR primers and probes and shown that the reagents remained stable and effective for a year at ambient laboratory conditions.

Researchers at Germany's University of Freiburg have developed a method to perform highly parallel PCR amplification in a picowell array while simultaneously immobilizing the PCR products onto a microscope slide for future analysis.

Scientists from the University of Freiburg in Germany have developed a sequence-dependent universal detection technique for monitoring real-time PCR reactions that they say could significantly reduce the cost of performing real-time PCR.

The technique allows for the first time the proteome-wide study of protein carboxy termini, according to one of its developers.

The funding from the three countries will use informatics to study systems involved in seed germination.

Mary Beckerle has been removed as director of the Huntsman Cancer Institute in what one researcher refers to as a "coup," ScienceInsider reports.
