single molecule barcoding

The team plans to eventually implement the MSI test clinically to determine whether patients are eligible for immunotherapy.

The planned instrument will help provide spatial information on both protein and RNA in tumor samples and will be powered by nCounter technology.

The chemistry will be single-molecule, based on hybridization, and will not require amplification, enzymes, or library prep, the firm said.

The company launched the BD FACSseq flow cytometer and BD Precise Assays for high-throughput single-cell gene-expression analysis studies at the ASHG annual meeting.

The solutions will combine RainDance's digital droplet technology and single-molecule barcoding technology with PacBio's proprietary long-range DNA amplification technology.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A federal court has ruled in Illumina's favor in a lawsuit filed by Helicos BioSciences that had alleged patent infringement.

William Young said the firm's platform — which uses digital barcoding to enable multiplexed, direct profiling of individual molecules in a single reaction without amplification — is currently deployed for research purposes, but he sees a big opportunity in diagnostics and pharmacogenomics.

American scientists find themselves once again warning the Trump administration not to dismiss science, the New Yorker report.

A new study suggests CRISPR could be used to save coral reefs from dying off, Forbes reports.

Researchers have found that the i-motif shape of DNA previously observed in the lab also exists in human cells, and that it may serve a purpose.
