|The Prestwick Chemical Library (R), A Valuable Tool for Screening|
Jean-Marie Contreras1, Christophe Morice1, Jean-Marc Simon1, Bruno Didier2, Marie-Louise Jung1 and Thierry Langer3
The Prestwick Chemical Library® (PCL) is Prestwick’s flagship product dedicated to screening. It is a collection of 1280 molecules comprising 100% approved drugs (FDA, EMEA and other agencies) selected for their high chemical and pharmacological diversity. The PCL was designed to reduce the risk of "low quality" hits and therefore the cost of the initial screening, and appears to be an efficient smart library for hit discovery. The PCL comes with an extended fully-annotated database.
|Spice Wars- Are You Battle Ready? Analysis of Synthetic Cannabinoids via Gas Chromatography—High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry|
David E. Alonso, John Rorabeck, and Joe Binkley
-EI/CI workflow facilitates confident compound identification.
-GC-HRT and HR-CI source provides high quality, accurate mass data for:
-Database searches (NIST, Wiley, etc.)
-Formula determination (fragment, molecular, and adduct ions)
|System-Specific Periodicity in qPCR Data and its Impact on Quantitation|
Joel Tellinghuisen,1 Stefan Roediger,2 Thomas Volksdorf,3 and Andrej-Nikolai Spiess3
In some commercial qPCR instruments, the fluorescence signal shows reaction-to-reaction periodicity in all cycles, and this translates into periodicity in threshold-based Cq markers.
|Bovine RNA-seq data analysis of liver and pituitary gland|
Pareek CS12, Smoczynski R12, Dziuba P12, Sikora M12, Golebiewski M2, Blaszczyk P12, Gelfand B3, Yaping F3, Kumar D3.
Two key applications of RNA-seq i.e., i) transcriptome read mapping to a reference genome and ii) SNP detections were investigated to analysis of bovine liver and pituitary gland transcriptome. Here, we have presented ONLY the obtained results of bovine pituitary gland.

A proteomic analysis of p27kip1-binding proteins reveals a putative role in transcription regulation through RNA polymerase II interaction
|Impact of the transgene MON 810 in expression of coding and non-coding RNAs in maize|
Rodrigues, M.1, Chegão, A. 1, Costa, A. 1, Fernandes, C.1, Quedas, F. 2, de Andrade, E.1
We demonstrate that plant improvement by means of transgenesis causse alterations in the expression profiles of endogenous non-target genes.
|Whole Transcriptome RNA-SEQ with Ion Torrent Platform: FFPE, Fresh LCM and FFPE LCM Samples. Increasingly Difficult|
Sara Franceschi1, Paolo Are*ni1, Marco La Ferla1, Generoso Bevilacqua1,2, Chiara Maria Mazzan*1 , Francesca Lessi1
We developed a high performance method to analyze the whole transcriptome of our FFPE samples, obtaining a very high number of reads (78,186,377 usable reads) perfectly comparable with samples with a large amount of RNA such as samples obtained from cells or fresh tissues.
|Study Of The Active Bacterial Community In Two Membrane Bioreactors|
Moreno-Mesonero, L.1, Moreno, Y.1*, Morillo, J.A., Muñagorri, F.2 and Alonso, J.L.1
In this work, bacterial communities from two MBR systems treating leachates were evaluated using the 16S rRNA metagenomics approach, with and without a viability dye (Propidium Monoazide, PMA).
|Improved Small RNA Library Preparation Workflow for Next-Generation Sequencing|
Sabrina Shore, Jordana Henderson, Anton McCaffrey, Gerald Zon, Richard Hogrefe
We describe an optimized workflow which suppresses adapter dimers, works with low RNA input and eliminates the need for a gel purification step.
