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.

Single Cell Omics 2011
Bookmark and Share

The single cell Omics revolution is the potential transformation of cellular heterogeneity from a source of noise to a source of new, as yet hidden discoveries. No longer will the variability from one cell to the next confound researchers and force them to average results into irrelevance. Researchers may find, in fact, that this variability is critical for cells to respond to and interact with their environments. But even without the complete revolution, single cell Omics offer significant evolutionary advances in fields of biology and medicine that are already based on single cell analysis, such as immunology, neurobiology, stem cell biology, circulating tumor cells and preimplantation genetic diagnosis. Moreover, the ongoing evolution of single cell Omics technologies provides improvements in sensitivity and throughput that will enable researchers to generate more data from smaller numbers of cells, which can be enabling in cases of precious samples. The result of this (r)evolution is a market for Omics technologies that is projected to grow from $60 million in sales in 2010 to $525 million in 2016, according to Single Cell Omics 2011, a new report published by Select Biosciences and written by BioPerspectives.

Survival of the fittest requires a detailed understanding of this emerging market. Single Cell Omics 2011 explains the key technologies, applications, unmet needs and trends. The 162-page report includes an Internet survey administered to a large stratified database; analyses of front-end separation technologies, back-end Omics technologies and integrated platforms to bridge the gap; profiles of 30 companies; and a quantitative market model segmented by technologies. In addition, the report comes with a reprint of the Trends in Biotechnology cover article written by two of the report authors. Moreover, the report also comes with one hour of consulting (in the form of a conference call) with report authors Dr. Bodovitz, Principal of BioPerspectives or Antje Plaschke-Schluetter, Head of Application at Molecular Machines & Industries AG.
