NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Researchers have linked low copy-number levels of the salivary amylase gene to obesity risk, a finding they reported in Nature Genetics yesterday.

A group of researchers from Germany's Robert Bosch Hospital and other associated institutions have described a PCR-based method they have developed to detect ALK fusions that takes advantage of some aspects of a method published earlier this year by Pfizer researchers, but which they say could be

Researchers from University College London, have shown that a targeted bisulfite sequencing method using RainDance Technologies' microdroplet PCR system can accurately measure DNA methylation levels at sample sizes as low as 100 nanograms.
