New methods for spatial transcriptomic profiling include a sequential FISH-based method and one that makes use of DNA-barcoded bead arrays.
The method builds on a previous technique the group developed to measure transcriptomes and surface proteins from single cells.
Some of the mutational signatures the researchers observed were similar to ones previously seen in B cell tumors, underscoring the link between aging and cancer.
Both teams had sequencing data generated at BGI and said that going forward, it would be important to validate the technology outside of BGI.
LabCorp's Covance business plans to offer single-cell services on Mission Bio's platform to pharma and to explore its use in companion diagnostics.
The effort, outlined in a Development Cell paper published online today, aims to complement the ongoing Human Cell Atlas initiative, but with a focus on pediatric health.
The startup's technology, which it plans to launch through an early-access program this summer, is based on a cell fixing and combinatorial barcoding strategy.
Speakers at this year's ABRF meeting described how they used single-cell tools in combination with other single-cell approaches and other methods.
In Nature this week: genetic analysis of Anatolian farmers, cotton genome analysis, and more.
Five early customers are currently operating the Sequel II, which promises an eightfold increase in throughput, making reference genome sequencing feasible.
The former commissioner of the FDA has returned to the venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates as a special partner on the healthcare investment team.
Astronauts have edited yeast genes on the International Space Station in an experiment designed to show how cells repair themselves in space.
Emory University has found that two of its researchers failed to divulge they had received funds from China, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
