Researchers plan to develop a device that supports nucleic acid sequencing and protein sequencing using plasmonic nanostructures.

A Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine team found that certain protein factors come together to form a central anchor, holding together loops of DNA.

According to the group, this edition of the project will focus on determining the limitations of various protein sequencing techniques -- in particular the sensitivity of various assays for obtaining or assigning sequences in N-terminal regions.

While Pittcon historically has been the venue of choice for debuting new proteomics tools, major vendors this year focused on applied markets, earlier instrument launches, and the newly cash-rich NIH.

The Hunter Medical Research Institute was started to bring together biomedical and clinical scientists — and the results have been so positive that it has become a model for how to accomplish translational research.

At ABRF’s annual conference this week, its various research groups presented preliminary results from their studies. One study found that clinical labs had trouble detecting PSA using standard ELISAs, which to some degree was a validation of proteomics.

The Wall Street Journal reports that National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins' response to contamination concerns at the agency might have delayed care.

The final revision of the Common Rule doesn't include the proposed change requiring consent for leftover biospecimens.

The first Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology papers show mixed results.

In Nature this week: mobile phone-based targeted DNA sequencing, and more.
