The AIR™ Genomic DNA Sequencing Kit is ideally suited for genomic DNA preparation of expression libraries for single read next-generation sequencing on Illumina platforms. This kit offers the simplest way to sequence short inserts or selected genomic regions. The AIR™ DNA Sequencing Kits offer significant improvements over traditional library preparation methods, including their ability to produce high quality, unbiased, sequencer-ready libraries from as little as 50 ng of DNA. They are complete kits that include all enzymes, adapters and clean-up columns needed for library preparation, facilitating the user’s ability to move from purified genomic DNA to cluster generation. DNA Fragmentation Both the AIR™ Paired End and the AIR Genomic DNA Sequencing Kits are compatible with the AIR™ DNA Fragmentation Kit that provides a means for unbiased DNA fragmentation. These kits are also compatible with alternative DNA shearing technologies such as ultrasound and sonication. Each kit has been functionally validated with the Illumina GAII and HiSeq 2000 sequencing platforms. These kits are designed for use in de novo sequencing and targeted re-sequencing applications. Sample Multiplexing AIR™ DNA Barcodes can be used to provide flexibility in high-throughput sequencing applications. They significantly increase scale and throughput while reducing costs by allowing the user to pool up to 96 multiple paired end library preparations into a single flow cell. For larger volume requirements, customized and bulk packaging is available. Please contact email@example.com for further information.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.Custom Tuning Knobs to Turn Off Any Gene Factory managers can improve productivity by telling workers to speed up, slow down or stop doing tangential tasks while assembling widgets. Unfortunately for synthetic biologists attempting to produce pharmaceuticals, microbes don’t respond to direction like human personnel.Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.Genetically Mapping the Most Lethal E.Coli Strains New approach could lead to fewer deaths, and new treatments. The Spice of Life Scientists discover important genetic source of human diversity.Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
