NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – RainDance Technologies said today that it has closed a $20 million Series E financing round and that Myriad Genetics has joined as a new strategic equity investor.

When Roche stops making NimbleGen DNA microarrays at the end of this year, its sequence capture chips will also no longer be available.

Researchers in the UK have compared a PCR-based and a capture hybridization-based assay for sequencing panels of inherited cardiovascular disease genes and have found both to be suitable for diagnostics in principle, though their sensitivity needs to be optimized.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A new study is adding heft to the notion that cytoskeletal pathway alterations can spur amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
