Product Watch: Qiagen GeneGlobe

Premium

Qiagen this week announced new capabilities for GeneGlobe, a web-based solution enabling researchers to search and select from more than 31 million PCR assay kits and next-generation sequencing assay panel products.

The new version of GeneGlobe integrates biological knowledge from the Ingenuity Target Explorer bioinformatics application with GeneGlobe's extensive library of wet lab assay solutions. By linking biological interpretation and references with the relevant laboratory assays, GeneGlobe creates a new dimension of utility for experimental design, assay selection, and data analysis, Qiagen said.

GeneGlobe includes genome-wide assay solutions for 28 species with any gene or pathway of interest. The search, selection, and interpretation features precisely identify assays and reagents that fit a life science researcher's experimental design and add a comprehensive set of interpretation solutions. GeneGlobe also features resources such as Pathway Central, Data Analysis Center, Custom Assay Design Tools, and the Plate Designer.

The Scan

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
