Revolutionary Technologies Developed to Improve Outcomes for Lung Cancer Patients
Breath test to detect lung cancer brings oxygen directly to the wound.
Dementia Linked to Deficient DNA Repair
Mutant forms of breast cancer factor 1 (BRCA1) are associated with breast and ovarian cancers but according to new findings, in the brain the normal BRCA1 gene product may also be linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
New Gene Map Reveals Cancer’s Achilles’ Heel
Team of researchers switches off almost 18,000 genes
New Discovery Sheds Light on Disease Risk
Gaps between genes interact to influence the risk of acquiring disease.
Mathematical Model Helps Show How Zebrafish Get Their Stripes
The iconic yellow and blue stripes of zebrafish form dynamically as young fish develop and grow. A mathematical model developed by Brown University researchers helps to show how pigment cells interact to form the pattern.
Epigenome Influenced by Habitat and Lifestyle
Study on Pygmy hunter-gatherer populations and Bantu farmers in Central Africa shows that habitat and lifestyle can impact the epigenome.
Shining Light on Microbial Growth and Death Inside our Guts
Precise measurement of microbial populations in gastrointestinal tracts could be key to identifying novel therapies.
New Tech Vastly Improves CRISPR/Cas9 Accuracy
A new CRISPR/Cas9 technology developed by scientists at UMass Medical School is precise enough to surgically edit DNA at nearly any genomic location, while avoiding potentially harmful off-target changes typically seen in standard CRISPR gene editing techniques.
New Class of RNA Tumor Suppressors Identified
Two short, “housekeeping” RNA molecules block cancer growth by binding to an important cancer-associated protein called KRAS. More than a quarter of all human cancers are missing these RNAs.
Biologists Induce Flatworms to Grow Heads and Brains of Other Species
Findings shed light on role of a new kind of epigenetic signaling in evolution, could yield clues for understanding birth defects and regeneration.

DNA and RNA Profiling in Human Blood
Bookmark and Share

Blood samples have consistently proven to be a key source of genetic material for a wide variety of diagnostic or research purposes. In DNA and RNA Profiling in Human Blood: Methods and Protocols, leading international experts contribute both established and recently developed protocols for complex and high-throughput DNA and RNA profiling. Divided into two thorough sections, the volume concentrates on DNA profiling for blood cell antigens through methods on high-throughput multiplex approaches and SNP typing, along with RNA profiling in blood cells addressing certain blood cell types such as platelets, reticulocytes, and megakaryocytes. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology(t) series format, all of the chapters include brief introductions on the subject, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, as well as the Notes section which highlights tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, DNA and RNA Profiling in Human Blood: Methods and Protocols is an ideal guide to the molecular profiling approaches that have opened up this broad field of research and have shown great promise in the further identifying of disease markers in blood.
