Recently validated on pseudomonas and TB samples, the business card-sized device also enables on-chip extraction. 

Researchers studying Timema stick insects found that small genetic changes over time due to selective mating could be how individual species evolve.

In an AGBT presentation, one early-access user of BD's Resolve platform described how he used it to analyze gene expression from 1,200 kidney cells. 

The team found that DNA damage affects a variety of samples and may lead to erroneous low-frequency variant calls unless stringent filtering is applied or the damage is repaired prior to sequencing.

Researchers profiling pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors detected inherited cancer-related mutations in nearly one-fifth of affected individuals.
