Azco Biotech has released its MaxSeq sequencing machine, designed by Intelligent BioSystems and based on sequencing-by-synthesis chemistry. The machine has a throughput of 100 gigabases, includes 8-lane flow cells and has kits for read lengths of 35 base pairs and 55 base pairs. It employs both Polony and Rolony library construction protocols, and can be used for genome sequencing, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and targeted sequencing.


SoftGenetics has released the latest version of its Mutation Surveyor software to analyze variants from Sanger sequencing reads. The new version includes a new alignment method to reduce false positives and enable it to handle noisy data. Additionally, it can now accept mitochondrial forensic nomenclatures of indels, include exon information in references files, report accession numbers, and align sequences across circular genomes.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.

Rett Syndrome Mouse Model Study Points to RNA Editing Possibilities

Investigators targeted MECP2 in mutant mouse models of Rett syndrome, showing in PNAS that they could restore its expression and dial down symptoms.

Investigators Find Shared, Distinct Genetic Contributors to Childhood Hodgkin Lymphoma

An association study in JAMA Network Open uncovers risk variants within and beyond the human leukocyte antigen locus.

Transcriptomic, Epigenetic Study Appears to Explain Anti-Viral Effects of TB Vaccine

Researchers report in Science Advances on an interferon signature and long-term shifts in monocyte cell DNA methylation in Bacille Calmette-Guérin-vaccinated infant samples.
