Scientific News
‘Measuring Stick’ Standard for Gene Sequencing Now Available from NIST
New reference material, NIST RM 8398, to “map” DNA for genetic testing.
Normal Skin Accrues High Number of Mutations Associated with Cancer
Researchers used genomic sequencing to gain insights into how somatic mutations build up in normal cells before the onset of cancer, a process that is poorly understood.
Diversity of the Global Ocean Microbiome
The Tara Oceans Consortium have revealed the huge diversity of species living in the oceans including viruses, prokaryotes and picoeurokaryotes.
Giant Panda Microbiome Poorly Adapted for a Bamboo Diet
Researchers have found that the microbiome of the Giant Panda lacks key bacterial species typically found in herbivores.
Study Looks at the Diagnostic Utility of Whole-Genome Sequencing
New research explores the potential of whole genome sequencing to revolutionize the diagnosis of genetic disorders in a clinical setting.
Using Microbial Communities to Assess Environmental Contamination
First there were canaries in coal mines, now there are microbes at nuclear waste sites, oil spills and other contaminated environments.
Potential Forensic Uses for Human Microbiome
A recent study suggests microbial communities found on or in some sites in an individual's body can be used as fingerprint-like identifiers.
NGS - The Big Data Addiction
The demand for ever more information by the genomics field began about two decades ago with the advent of microarray technology and has grown exponentially ever since.
DNA Suggests All Early Eskimos Migrated from North Slope
First evidence to genetically tie all Inuit populations to Alaska's North Slope.
Edico Genome Speeds Analysis of Whole Genome Sequence with 300x Depth of Coverage Tenfold
Results achieved in approximately six hours, compared to 60 hours with standard software.
