long non-coding RNAs
Diagnostics Developer Early is Good Raises $4M in Seed Funding
The company will use the funds to complete clinical trials for its first product, BCDx, a laboratory-developed test for early bladder cancer detection.
While short-read sequencing is still essential for studying RNA and gene expression, new methods are providing a sharper picture of transcript variants.
NCI Grants $1.9M to Roswell Park to Study Molecular Race-Based Breast Cancer Disparities
The grant will fund an investigation into long noncoding RNA and the role it plays in differing prognoses between Black and white breast cancer patients.
A new sequencing-based method developed by Duke University's Kate Meyer is one of several that can detect RNA methylation without the use of antibodies.
Stanford Researchers Map RNA Localization Within Cells Using New Spatial Transcriptomics Method
APEX-seq builds on a proteomic labelling technique and offers a new spatial genomics tool for looking at the life of transcripts within the cell.
