Samples Available for gPRG's 2010 Glycoprotein Study


This story has been updated from a previous version to correct the year in the headline.

The Glycoprotein Research Group of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities has announced the availability of samples for its 2010 glycoprotein study.

This year's study will concentrate on different techniques for determining the relative differences in N-linked and O-linked glycosylation in similar glycoprotein samples. It is a follow-up to last year's study, which covered the same topic. The primary goal of the study is to document the range of approaches available and highlight the information gained from each method.

Researchers will be asked to: Identify the major N-linked and/or O-linked glycans in three similar glycoprotein samples; perform a relative quantitative analysis of N-linked and O-linked glycans in the three samples; and complete a survey describing the methods used. Results from the study will be presented at the ABRF 2011 meeting Feb. 19-22 in San Antonio.

Requests for samples should be emailed to [email protected] before Dec. 10. Participants' data is due by Jan. 14.

Suicidal Ideation-Linked Loci Identified Using Million Veteran Program Data

Researchers in PLOS Genetics identify risk variants within and across ancestry groups with a genome-wide association study involving veterans with or without a history of suicidal ideation.

Algorithm Teases Out Genetic Ancestry in Individuals at Biobank Scale

Researchers develop an algorithm known as Rye to tease apart ancestry fractions in admixed individuals at a biobank-scale, applying it to 488,221 UK Biobank participants in Nucleic Acids Research.

Multi-Ancestry Analysis Highlights Comparable Common Variants at Complex Trait-Linked Loci

Researchers in Nature Genetics examine common variants implicated in more than three dozen conditions, estimating genetic effect similarities across ancestry tracts in admixed individuals.
