Point of Care Diagnostics - A Cautious Revolution
Advances in molecular biology, coupled with the miniaturization and improved sensitivity of assays and devices in general, have enabled a new wave of point-of-care (POC) or “bedside” diagnostics.
Mass Spec Technology Drives Innovation Across the Biopharma Workflow
With greater resolving power, analytical speed, and accuracy, new mass spectrometry technology and techniques are infiltrating the biopharmaceuticals workflow.
One Step Closer to Precision Medicine for Chronic Lung Disease Sufferers
A study led by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and National Jewish Health, has provided evidence of links between SNPs and known COPD blood protein biomarkers.
Charles River Acquires Agilux
Enhances Charles River’s early-stage capabilities in bioanalytical services.
Scientists Find Lethal Vulnerability in Treatment-Resistant Lung Cancer
The study describes how the drug Selinexor killed lung cancer cells and shrank tumors in mice when used against cancers driven by the aggressive and difficult-to-treat KRAS cancer gene.
How Baby’s Genes Influence Birth Weight And Later Life Disease
The large-scale study could help to target new ways of preventing and treating these diseases.
Genes Underlying Dogs’ Social Ability Revealed
The social ability of dogs is affected by genes that also seem to influence human behaviour, according to a new study from Linköping University in Sweden.
‘Cellbots’ Chase Down Cancer, Deliver Drugs Directly to Tumors
Programmable T cells shown to be versatile, precise, and powerful in lab studies.
Drug to Treat Alcohol Use Disorder Shows Promise Among Drinkers With High Stress
The findings suggest that potential future studies with drugs targeting vasopressin blockade should focus on populations of people with AUD who also report high levels of stress.
C Dots Show Powerful Tumor Killing Effect

Whitepaper discussing the technique of aligning next generation sequencing (HTS) data.

OSA is Omicsoft's read aligner designed for high performance alignment of short or long reads to reference libraries (genomes or transcriptomes).

 Key features of OSA:
1. High performance for both single end alignment and paired end alignment. Works on reads with 17-65536 nucleotides.
2. For Illumina reads (17nt or longer), allow any number of mismatches and a single indel in the reads. Can identify and report all available alignments in the genome with specified mismatches/indel.
3. For long reads (e.g. 454 reads or PacificBio reads), allow any number of mismatches and indels in the reads. Use banded Smith-Waterman to find the optimal alignment.
4. Directly align RNA-Seq reads to genome by considering both known and novel exon junctions
5. Directly align fusion reads: reads spliced by two different genes or genomic regions
6. Automatic quality based trimming
7. Automatic adapter trimming
8. Support all common input formats (.fasta; .fastq; .qseq; .sff); directly support .gzip files allowing savings in file space
9. Support multiple threads
