The company, which previously focused on the development of multiplex PCR assays, is hoping to make its ATOM-seq technology available for research use later this year.
The team's Pro-Code system enabled simultaneous high-dimensional protein-level phenotyping of hundreds of genes with single-cell resolution.
The companies will work on applying barcoding technology to single-cell measurements of gene and protein expression and to immune cell profiling.
By using array-synthesized guide-donor oligonucleotide pairs, the team's gene editing technique allows accurate and detectable phenotyping in yeast cells.
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.
University of Idaho researchers model the scientific discovery process to examine the link between reproducibility and scientific truth.
A bill passed by a US House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee would give scientific agencies including the National Science Foundation boosts in funding.
Relocating USDA agencies outside of Washington, DC, may make them less effective, critics of the move tell NPR.
