Different clades of Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis are behind the self-limiting and invasive diseases the bacterium causes in different parts of the world.

The company said it plans to launch a clinical trial to validate its Immray PanCan-d blood test in both Europe and the US.

University of Liverpool researchers analyzed methylation in the wheat genome to find variations in subgenome-specific methylation.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The University of Liverpool said on Wednesday that it has been awarded about £20.5 million ($33.5 million) to build an incubator space for small and medium-sized businesses operating in the personalized medicine arena.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A University of Maryland team used transcriptome sequencing to uncover possible pest control targets in the brown marmorated stink bug Halyomorpha halys.

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.
