Small RNA Barcoding for Sample Multiplexing
News Jan 25, 2010
They significantly increase scale and throughput while reducing costs by allowing the user to pool multiple library preparations into a single sequencing reaction. The AIR Barcoded Adapters enable the user to detect rare sample events amongst hundreds of samples, across several time points and even multiple genomes. Predesigned AIR Barcoded Adapters, are available in sets of 10, 20, or 30 and were designed based on uniform melting temperature (Tm) and sequences that have unique color space. Once attached to a sample, they may be pooled together and sequenced in a single flow cell run. Analysis post run allows the user to identify the sequence barcode back to specific samples.
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?
Scientists have developed a successful method to make truly personalized predictions of future disease outcomes for patients with certain types of chronic blood cancers. The study combined extensive genetic and clinical information to predict the prognosis for patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms.
For centuries, gardeners have attempted to breed blue roses with no success. But now, thanks to modern biotechnology, the elusive blue rose may finally be attainable. Researchers have found a way to express pigment-producing enzymes from bacteria in the petals of a white rose, tinting the flowers blue.
