A team of scientists believe that exosomal miRNAs holds promise to be significant biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease. 

A number of firms now have FDA-approved Group A Strep assays, but end users may be hesitant to adopt them until Infectious Disease Society of America guidelines are updated.

The UK firm provides chemicals for DNA-, RNA-, and PCR-based research, products for DNA and protein labeling, and proteomics reagents and kits. 

The team has been monitoring changes in host gene expression patterns due to different types of infections, and hopes to develop a diagnostic test.

A method developed at MIT creates polyacrylamide beads around droplets containing single cells to sequester bacterial genomes and allow for harsh lysis conditions; it then uses concatenated PCR and sequencing to address links between phylogeny and function.
