New Products: Horizon Diagnostics' Quantitative Multiplex DNA Reference Standard

Premium

Horizon Diagnostics has launched the Quantitative Multiplex DNA Reference Standard, a standard intended for researchers assessing multiple biomarkers in a single next-generation sequencing assay.

Horizon said the standard enables researchers to quantify a range of detection thresholds for 11 cancer-relevant mutations. It is currently available as genomic DNA and the company is also working on a matched formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded format to be launched later this year.

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

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.
