NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Diagnostics technologies developer Avacta Group and the University of Liverpool will collaborate to develop integrated microarray and mass spectrometry tools for use in detecting biomarkers and discovering new drug targets.
Clinical researchers from the University of Liverpool have determined that a combination of DNA-based quantitative PCR and immunohistochemistry is more specific and sensitive than several other single and combination methods — including DNA qPCR alone — for diagnosing a form of h
A zoologist by training, Cossins, who runs the university's Institute of Integrative Biology and co-directs its Centre for Genome Research, adopted array technology early to study environmental stress in non-model organisms.
By comparing genetic and gene expression patterns in African cattle breeds that are relatively sensitive or resistant to Trypanosoma congolense infection, researchers have identified genes that they suspect may contribute to trypanotolerance in cattle.
The US Food and Drug Administration in 2007 updated the label for carbamazepine to recommend that patients of Asian ancestry taking the drug be tested for the HLA-B*1502 marker. While one NEJM study published this week supports this practice, a second study suggests that the boxed warning be expanded to include a new allele for the European population.
