The high-performance kit offers a holistic view of the complete transcriptome in a simplified workflow and is compatible with a broad range of sample inputs from a variety of sample types, including degraded RNA specimens.
Scientists have engineered what is claimed to be the first breed of genetically modified mosquitoes resistant to spreading all four types of the dengue virus.
Illumina has announced the NextSeq 1000 and NextSeq 2000 Sequencing Systems — offering clever system design, chemistry innovations and on-instrument integrated informatics for rapid secondary analysis in as little as 2 h.
US scientists have captured the first images of a new gene editing tool that could improve on existing CRISPR-based tools.
Until now it has been difficult to estimate lifespan for most wild animals, particularly long-living species of marine mammals and fish.
A person's risk of developing cancer is affected by genetic variations in regions of DNA that don't code for proteins, previously dismissed as 'junk DNA'.
It was previously known that women with endometriosis had a higher risk of developing uterine fibroids. However, the common mechanism underlying these diseases was not known.
Scientists have identified how damaged DNA molecules are repaired inside the human genome — a discovery that offers new insights into how the body works to ensure its health.
The ability to select embryos for traits that are brought about by multiple genes is more complicated than people probably realise.
Researchers transplanted engineered pancreatic beta cells into diabetic mice, then caused the cells to produce two to three times the typical level of insulin by exposing them to light.
Researchers have discovered changes in blood samples which are associated with Alzheimer's disease, thanks to an international study of Finnish twins.
Genetic risk of ADHD in children was found to be strongly associated with early maternal age at first birth, particular for women younger than 20.
Thermo Fisher Scientific's Ion Torrent Genexus System is a fully integrated, next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform featuring an automated specimen-to-report workflow that delivers results in a single day, enabling a future in which local hospitals can adopt NGS testing.
Plasmodium falciparum is a species of malaria parasite that only infects humans, after switching host from gorillas through a process known as zoonosis around 50,000 years ago.
NGS Discovery Pools are high-quality, individually synthesised, 5′ biotinylated oligo pools designed to enable researchers to rapidly build custom panels, making NGS accessible to more stages of research and speeding up projects.
