Fluidigm has released an amplicon tagging protocol for the Illumina Genome Analyzer II. According to the company, the 48.48 Access Array integrated fluidic circuit allows Illumina GA users to automatically prepare sequencing-ready libraries from 48 samples at a time for $7 per sample. The array can capture up to 12 kilobases of sequence per sample. Upcoming applications, such as long-range PCR, will enable users to target up to 480 kilobases of sequence per sample, or 23 megabases per array.

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.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

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.
