Ancient Viral Molecules Essential for Human Development
Genetic material from ancient viral infections is critical to human development, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Measuring microRNAs in Blood to Speed Cancer Detection
A simple, ultrasensitive microRNA sensor holds promise for the design of new diagnostic strategies and, potentially, for the prognosis and treatment of pancreatic and other cancers.
Best Test to Diagnose Strangles in Horses Identified
New research by Dr. Ashley Boyle of New Bolton Center’s Equine Field Service team shows that the best method for diagnosing Strangles in horses is to take samples from a horse’s guttural pouch and analyze them using a loop-mediated amplification (LAMP) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.
Tardigrade's Are DNA Master Thieves
Tardigrades, nearly microscopic animals that can survive the harshest of environments, including outer space, hold the record for the animal that has the most foreign DNA.
Rapid, Portable Ebola Diagnostic
Scientists confirmed the efficiency of the novel Ebola detection method in field trials.
Detecting When Hormone Treatment for Breast Cancer Stops Working
Scientists have developed a highly sensitive blood test that can spot when breast cancers become resistant to standard hormone treatment, and have demonstrated that this test could guide further treatment.
Packaging and Unpacking of the Genome
New research improves understanding of the importance of histone replacement.
New Way to Find DNA Damage
University of Utah chemists devised a new way to detect chemical damage to DNA that sometimes leads to genetic mutations responsible for many diseases, including various cancers and neurological disorders.
How Different Treatments for Crohn's Effect the Microbiome
Different treatments for Crohn's disease in children affects their gut microbes in distinct ways, which has implications for future development of microbial-targeted therapies for these patients, according to a study led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Charting the 'Genomic Biography' of Leukemia
A new study by scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard offers a glimpse of the wealth of information that can be gleaned by combing the genome of a large collection of leukemia tissue samples.

This is the latest and most up-to-date Market Report from Select Biosciences addressing the expanding epigenetics marketplace. Epigenetics research efforts are growing around the world driven by the numerous documented associations of epigenetic modifications with diseases—especially various types of cancers.

This report presents the biological role of various epigenetic modifications in vivo and frames them in the context of specific biological events such as differentiation and disease.

This report also examines qualitative and in quantitative terms the research market landscape of epigenetics as it exists currently based on Select Biosciences bottom-up market research on this topic. Presented is market segmentation of epigenetics based on end-user research, based on technology utilization, and based on specific disease areas being studied. The primary market data are derived from a worldwide respondent pool that is highly-representative of the life science research community and therefore provides an excellent proxy for the understanding of the research trends operative in this space.

In addition to characterization of the epigenetics research marketplace, this report also presents an analysis of epigenetic biomarkers and their deployment as potential diagnostics. Also presented herein are the efforts vis-à-vis deployment of epigenetics as therapeutics—in this vein the clinical pipeline as it exists currently is presented.

This data-driven characterization of the epigenetics research landscape is a hands-on document that can be used for competitive benchmarking, business planning, and strategy development—all the data that have been collected in this industry analysis are presented and they form the basis for the conclusions drawn throughout the market report presented in a format enabling “drag-and-drop” into business presentations/business plans.
