tandem mass tagging Newborn Exome Sequencing Shows Potential to Help Find Inborn Errors of Metabolism Exome sequencing had lower sensitivity and specificity for finding inborn errors of metabolism than conventional screening, but appeared to refine mass spec-based results. Tandem Mass Tag Usage Could Benefit From New Methods, Expanded Applications Premium New instrumentation, reagents, and methods, as well as increasing interest in small and single-cell samples, could prove a boon for the technology. Integrated Blood Analysis Offers Look at Immune Development Over Infants' First Week Researchers brought together blood transcriptomic, metabolomic, proteomic, and immune cell profiles for dozens of West African and Australasian infants. Researchers Uncover Three New Biomarkers of Active Tuberculosis A preliminary analysis based on high-resolution metabolomics pointed to three blood plasma metabolites with apparent ties to active, pulmonary tuberculosis.
