Understanding Single Cell Sequencing, How It Works, and Its Applications
Single cell sequencing, while a relatively recent development, is opening doors in ours understanding of cell populations and tissues. This article explores how this technology works and what it tells us.
qPCR Analysis, How a qPCR Machine Works and qPCR Protocol
In this article, we will consider how qPCR works, experimental requirements, data analysis and applications of the technique.
Various biopharmaceutical analysis techniques are used to gain vital insights into the composition, quality, stability and safety of complex biotherapeutics throughout the development pipeline. In this article, we take a closer look at some of the strategies employed by scientists in the field.
Unpicking the Complexities of the Cancer Microbiome
Understanding the relationship between cancer and the microbes that call our bodies home could transform the way the disease is managed in the future.
Bringing NGS-Based Testing Closer to Home: The Need for Wider Access
This article discusses the growing need for increased access to NGS-based genomic testing, what needs to change to make that possible and what expanded accessibility could mean for the future of patient care and population health at large.
Establishing Good Laboratory Pipetting Practices May Be More Important Than You Realize
This article will highlight how new pipetting systems are helping scientists achieve more reliable and reproducible datasets, and discuss how manufacturers are supporting customers to get the most from pipetting systems.
The Role of DNA Methylation in Human Disease
DNA methylation is one of the earliest epigenetic modifications to be discovered in human beings. Here we highlight some of the diseases caused by aberrant DNA methylation.
Realizing the Potential of CRISPR-Cas Technology To Mitigate Climate Change
As the climate changes, we urgently need to engineer plants that can withstand harsher climatic conditions and exposure to new pests and diseases. Genome editing using CRISPR technology may be a key approach to improving agricultural production.
Return From Extinction
The prospect of "reviving" an extinct species – or a, genetic hybrid version of it – is moving closer to reality thanks to the sophistication of genome engineering technologies. In this article, sit down with Professor George Church to learn about his plans to "de-extinct" the woolly mammoth.
TRON’s CoVigator Offers an Unseen Perspective of SARS-CoV-2
In this article, we explore how the Corona Virus Navigator (CoVigator) NGS pipeline is being used to identify non-synonymous mutations in the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.
