In a study conducted by GE Healthcare, researchers examined the yield and quality of DNA from blood samples applied to Whatman FTA cards, using five common methods of DNA extraction.
New research from Emory University shows that the human RNA molecule called nc886 may be a key player in human cells' frontline defences against viruses.
SA Water scientists are using DNA to search for shy platypus, and the presumed-extinct thylacine.
Bio-Rad Laboratories has announced the IncRNA Workflow, a RT-qPCR workflow that is optimised for highly sensitive and specific quantification of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) for gene expression analysis. The workflow provides a streamlined alternative to RNA-Seq for lncRNA discovery and validation.
The osteomiR microRNA signature is intended to assess the risk of a first fracture in female patients of postmenopausal osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes. This information enables timely interventions and can help to avoid fractures.
The iSeq 100 Sequencing System is a small and accessible sequencer from Illumina. Designed for simplicity, it allows labs of all sizes to sequence DNA and RNA at the push of a button.
Scientists have developed a new system to identify and characterise the molecular components that control the activities of regulatory DNA sequences in the human genome.
US scientists have used CRISPR to edit human embryos, removing a mutation linked to a heritable heart condition.
Scientists have identified important processes that create cancer-causing mutations by studying the genomes of more than 1000 tumours.
Scientists in the US have reportedly modified the genes of human embryos using CRISPR.
DNA molecules can be damaged by exposure to chemicals, UV light, radical oxygen and radiation. If left unrepaired, this damage could lead to genomic instability and cell death.
A Victorian government-commissioned study has confirmed that the eradication of an established pest species can be extremely resource-intensive and costly, and recommends investment in novel tools such as innovative monitoring techniques and improved prevention strategies.
US scientists have managed to generate near-atomic resolution snapshots of gene editing tool CRISPR, in a breakthrough that provides the structural data necessary for efforts to improve the efficiency and accuracy of CRISPR for biomedical applications.
Researchers have adapted an RNA-targeting CRISPR protein for use as a highly sensitive diagnostic tool.
The FastPrep-24 5G is part of the FastPrep family of sample preparation systems for the isolation and purification of high molecular weight genomic DNA, functional RNA and biologically active proteins, metabolites and other small molecules.
