Sequencing

News on NGS technologies, RNA-seq, clinical sequencing, & sample prep in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

At the Association of Biomolecular Research Facilities annual meeting this week, the ABRF Genomics Research Group presented results from its comparison of single-cell RNA sequencing platforms.

By sequencing and characterizing the genome of Artemisia annua, researchers uncovered gene expansions and regulatory features linked to artemisinin production.

In analyses of multiple traits and diseases, investigators uncovered loss-of-function or truncating changes with apparent protective effects.

NuProbe said it will use the funding to expand its staff and to continue development of its toehold hybridization probe technology.

Scientists have sequenced more than 2,700 distinct strains from the National Collection of Type Cultures, a non-profit biorepository run by Public Health England.

American scientists find themselves once again warning the Trump administration not to dismiss science, the New Yorker report.

A new study suggests CRISPR could be used to save coral reefs from dying off, Forbes reports.

Researchers have found that the i-motif shape of DNA previously observed in the lab also exists in human cells, and that it may serve a purpose.

In PNAS this week: a genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic analysis of the tea plant, Arabidopsis thaliana's adaptations to specific local environments, and more.
