NanoString said its sequencing technology harnesses its expertise in optical barcodes and that it would develop it for clinical use to complement its existing products.

The company, a spinoff from genomics service provider Macrogen, plans to offer patients an exome test that screens for more than 4,000 rare diseases.

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.
