Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Researchers Develop qPCR Prognosis Test for NSCLC Patients
A nine-gene molecular prognostic index (MPI) for patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) was able to provide accurate survival stratification and could potentially inform the use of adjuvant therapy in patients struggling with the disease.
Genome Wide Annotation of Primary miRNAs Reveals Novel Mechanisms
Researchers have devised a strategy for genome-wide annotation of primary miRNA transcripts, providing extensive new annotations in human and mouse, and shedding light on mechanisms of regulation of microRNA gene expression.
‘Fishing Expedition’ Nets Nearly Tenfold Increase in Number of Sequenced Virus Genomes
Newly developed computational tool finds 12,500 genomes of viruses that infect microbes.
First Gene that Causes Mitral Valve Prolapse Identified
An international research collaboration led by MGH investigators has identified the first gene in which mutations cause the common form of mitral valve prolapse, a heart valve disorder that affects almost 2.5 percent of the population.
Automation Abound at AACC in Atlanta
Discover the latest breakthroughs, trends and products from the AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo.
Ultrafast DNA Diagnostics
New technology developed by UC Berkeley bioengineers promises to make a workhorse lab tool cheaper, more portable and many times faster by accelerating the heating and cooling of genetic samples with the switch of a light.
The Genetic Roots of Adolescent Scoliosis
Scientists at the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences in collaboration with Keio University in Japan have discovered a gene that is linked to susceptibility of Scoliosis.
Diagnostic Test Developed for Enterovirus D68
researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a diagnostic test to quickly detect enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), a respiratory virus that caused unusually severe illness in children last year.
Simple Technology Makes CRISPR Gene Editing Cheaper
University of California, Berkeley, researchers have discovered a much cheaper and easier way to target a hot new gene editing tool, CRISPR-Cas9, to cut or label DNA.

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.
