Onconova will use Mission Bio's Tapestri platform to study rigosertib — a drug that Onconova is developing — to target the RAS mutation in myelodysplastic syndromes.
The method allows for the annotation of cells by their genotype and capture of single-cell transcriptomes, even when the cells aren't morphologically distinct.
X Gen US, a California startup led by a veteran sequencing tools developer, says its kits can create single-cell RNA-seq libraries in less than two hours.
Using single-cell RNA-seq and other approaches, researchers looked at the four known medulloblastoma subtypes and the brain cell types from which they arise.
The company is aiming to create a suite of products that can help researchers and manufacturers engineer various genomes at scale for multiple purposes.
Researchers used Mission Bio's Tapestri assay to identify and monitor the evolution of cancer mutations in acute myeloid leukemia in response to targeted treatment.
The team evaluated various technologies in an attempt to develop a framework to compare future methods against and to serve as a guide for researchers.
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.
A genetic genealogy analysis helped secure the release of a California man from prison after getting his murder conviction overturned, the Guardian reports.
Technology Review discusses the concerns that come along with the ability to quickly synthesize viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
Researchers have uncovered large bacteriophages whose genomes include translational machinery, Live Science reports.
In PNAS this week: role for Myc in alternative splicing regulation in prostate cancer, variation in methylation in Arabidopsis, and more.
