News on qPCR, digital PCR, amplification, point-of-care testing platforms in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

The £550,000 award is part of a larger multi-partner grant to develop and implement a point-of-care test to avoid antibiotic-related hearing loss in newborns.

Intas Science Imaging Instruments will launch the Dutch biotechnology company's NextGen PCR thermal cycler in the German market.

In a proof-of-concept study published in Nature Biotechnology this week, the team demonstrated that it could enzymatically synthesize 10-mer oligonucleotides.

Mayo Clinic researchers found that mutations in these genes could be found in nearly 6 percent of patients and argued for germline genetic testing for patients.

The assay detects a mutation that can confer hearing loss in patients, particularly neonates, who have taken gentamicin, an antibiotic prescribed for certain bacterial infections.

A new report highlights the potential threats posed by advances in synthetic biology, NPR reports.

A Bloomberg reporter tried to get her genetic data deleted, but found it's not so simple to do.

Johns Hopkins University's Steven Salzberg and his colleagues have come up with a new estimate for the number of human genes, Nature News reports.

In Genome Research this week: study of intra-tumor heterogeneity, workflow resources for EPIGEN-Brazil, and more.
