Toronto General Hospital Program Buys $880K in Thermo Proteomic Tools

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — A Toronto General Hospital program has bought around CA$1 million ($880,000) worth of certain Thermo Electron technologies as part of an R&D and supply agreement, Thermo said late last week.
The company will also fund a postdoc for two years and offer training workshops for the program, which will study transplant rejection.
The Research in Immune Tolerance in Transplantation program at General Hospital’s Industrial Biodevelopment Laboratory has acquired a liquid chromatographer and mass spec, Thermo said.
The RITT will study the biology of transplant rejection and try to develop treatments to prevent it.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

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.
