ServiceXS Introduces new Line of Products and Services based on DNAFORM’s Cloning and CAGE Technology
News Oct 06, 2008
DNAFORM and ServiceXS B.V. have announced that the companies signed an agreement in which ServiceXS is appointed as exclusive distributor for DNAFORM’s products and services using DNAFORM’s proprietary cloning and CAGE technology in the Benelux.
On October 1st, ServiceXS officially launched two new services: DeepCAGE and NormRNA sequencing. DeepCAGE, a combination of DNAFORM’s proprietary CAGE technology® and ServiceXS’ next-generation sequencing service, facilitates genome-wide analysis of 5’-ends of mRNA molecules.
Currently, DeepCAGE allows sequencing of 5 million 5’ RNA-ends in a single run. DeepCAGE offers a solution to study transcription initiation and regulation at a whole-genome level. Furthermore, DeepCAGE enables promoter mapping.
The NormRNA sequencing service combines DNAFORM’s technology to create full-length, normalized cDNA Libraries with ServiceXS’ next-generation sequencing service, enabling genome-wide analysis of the transcriptome.
Applications include whole transcript profiling in basic genome projects, analysis of RNA splice variants in fundamental research, as well as a wide range of specialized applications like the discovery of new RNA-RNA fusions in oncology research. In addition, DNAFORM full-length cDNA libraries provide access to cDNA clones for newly discovered transcripts for further functional analysis.
Scientists at McGill have found the answer to a question that perplexed Charles Darwin; if natural selection works at the level of the individual, fighting for survival and reproduction, how can a single colony produce worker ants that are so dramatically different in size – from “minor” workers to large-headed soldiers with huge mandibles – especially if they are sterile?
