The findings build on previous work that showed a gene known to be regulated by an miRNA family influenced the growth of fruit in Arabidopsis.

The technology involves targeted sequencing of rare extracellular microRNAs ordinarily represented by low numbers of reads and therefore hard to detect.

The proof-of-principle application suggests networks of microRNA, RNA, and other 'omics data can untangle drug response and more.

Abcam was encouraged to buy Firefly BioWorks by its customers, who are more frequently complementing their protein analysis work with miRNA studies.

The all-cash deal gives Abcam access to Firefly's multiplex assay biomarker-detection platform.

The partners will try to validate the ability of has-miR-31-3p to predict which patients may benefit from anti-EGFR therapy.

Caprion, Asuragen, and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology join the consortium launched in 2013 to develop blood-based tests for the early detection of cancers.

The data show that RG-012 can enhance the effect of Sanofi's kidney protectant ramipril and suggest the microRNA drug might have use in other chronic kidney diseases.

The data also indicate early signs of clinical activity in certain patients.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — October was a turbulent month on Wall Street for several key RNAi/microRNA players, with two companies — Regulus Therapeutics and Alnylam Pharmaceuticals — seeing major gains on encouraging clinical data and two others — Arrowhead Research and Tekmira Pharmaceuticals — taki
