The Carlsbad, California-based company said that the contract — its third with the EPA — has a potential value of $25 million over five years.
These hybrid capture-based methods target gene transcripts of interest, which could shrink sequencing costs for some experiments by as much as 90 percent.
The team also found that the proportion of infected people didn't change substantially during the screening period, consistent with beneficial containment.
The screen, which multiplexes Cas9 and Cas12a, could be used for functional analysis of large genomic regions in mammalian cells, the researchers said.
The screening platform, which uses the Cas13 nuclease to target RNA instead of DNA, can be used to design guide RNAs for CRISPR research.
Called Theta, Single Technologies' platform relies on automated fluidics and single molecule-sensitive imaging to improve sequencing throughput.
Two recent CRISPR-Cas9 viability screens in cancer cell lines were concordant across multiple metrics despite significant differences in experimental protocols.
In Science this week: approach to measure microRNA targeting efficiency, strategy to conduct high-throughput chemical screens at single-cell resolution, and more.
The new method, called sci-Plex, combines nuclear hashing and improved single-cell combinatorial indexing RNA-seq to profile the transcriptional response of single cells.
The researchers identified genes that specifically extend the lifespan of neurons and found genes that increase the number of neurites in the brain.
SARS-CoV-2 vaccine developers are evaluating further vaccine doses as well as modified doses to keep up with new viral variants, according to CNN.
The New York Times reports that a new viral variant of concern has been identified in New York City.
In Nature this week: spatiotemporally resolved map of the human cell cycle, folding single-cell RNA sequencing into cancer drug studies, and more.
