Breaking Through the Barriers to Lab Innovation
Here we examine the drivers behind the move for greater innovation, the challenges and current trends in laboratory informatics, and the tools that can be used to break these barriers.
Education and Expense: The Barriers to Mass Spectrometry in Clinical Laboratories?
Here we examine the perceived barriers to mass spec in clinical laboratories and explore the possible drivers behind the recent shift in uptake of the technology in clinical settings.
Fruit Fly Pheromone Flags Great Real Estate for Starting a Family
Finding could aid efforts to control mosquito-borne diseases like malaria by manipulating odorants
Gene Editing Could Enable Pig-To-Human Organ Transplant
The largest number of simultaneous gene edits ever accomplished in the genome could help bridge the gap between organ transplant scarcity and the countless patients who need them.
Antioxidants Cause Malignant Melanoma to Metastasize Faster
Fresh research at Sahlgrenska Academy has found that antioxidants can double the rate of melanoma metastasis in mice.
New Therapy Reduces Symptoms of Inherited Enzyme Deficiency
A phase three clinical trial of a new enzyme replacement medication, sebelipase alfa, showed a reduction in multiple disease-related symptoms in children and adults with lysosomal acid lipase deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficiency that can result in scarring of the liver and high cholesterol.
Adult High Blood Pressure Risk Identifiable in Childhood
Groups of people at risk of having high blood pressure and other related health issues by age 38 can be identified in childhood, new University of Otago research suggests.
Analyzing Protein Structures in Their Native Environment
Enhanced-sensitivity NMR could reveal new clues to how proteins fold.
Supercoiled DNA is Far More Dynamic Than the “Watson-Crick” Double Helix
Researchers have imaged in unprecedented detail the three-dimensional structure of supercoiled DNA, revealing that its shape is much more dynamic than the well-known double helix.
Mini-kidneys Successfully Grown from Stem Cells
Researchers from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute have perfected a method of turning stem cells into mini-kidneys for use in drug screening, disease modelling and cell therapy.

DNA and RNA Profiling in Human Blood
Bookmark and Share

Blood samples have consistently proven to be a key source of genetic material for a wide variety of diagnostic or research purposes. In DNA and RNA Profiling in Human Blood: Methods and Protocols, leading international experts contribute both established and recently developed protocols for complex and high-throughput DNA and RNA profiling. Divided into two thorough sections, the volume concentrates on DNA profiling for blood cell antigens through methods on high-throughput multiplex approaches and SNP typing, along with RNA profiling in blood cells addressing certain blood cell types such as platelets, reticulocytes, and megakaryocytes. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology(t) series format, all of the chapters include brief introductions on the subject, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, as well as the Notes section which highlights tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, DNA and RNA Profiling in Human Blood: Methods and Protocols is an ideal guide to the molecular profiling approaches that have opened up this broad field of research and have shown great promise in the further identifying of disease markers in blood.
