PathoQuest has formed a scientific advisory board, comprising Marc Eloit, Frederic Laurent, Olivier Lortholary, Robin Patel, and Etienne Ruppé. Eloit is the founder of PatholQuest, a principal investigator at Institut Pasteur, and a professor of virology and former head of the virology unit at the Veterinary School of Maisons-Alfort. 

Laurent is a professor of microbiology at Hospices Civils de Lyon, while Lortholary is a professor and chair of the department of infectious and tropical diseases at  Hôpital Necker-Enfants Malades. Patel is chair of the division of clinical microbiology at the Mayo Clinic, and Ruppé is an assistant professor at the Hôpital Bichat. 

The SAB will advise PathoQuest on high-value medical applications for the firm's iDTECT Blood, an NGS-based metagenomic infectious disase diagnostic technology, it said. 

The Scan

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.
