Patrick McGeeSenior Editor Last month, the Muscular Dystrophy Association announced the first US human gene therapy trial for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which will take place at Columbus Children's
Expression analyses and molecular biological studies contribute to a systems-level understanding of host response, and new analytical software tools can help.
Advances in genomics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics are converging to form an environment rich for pharmacogenomic discoveries. But who will till the soil?
Developments in any technological field tend to be driven by need, computing power, and often, new discoveries. Mass spectrometry researchers are constantly working to develop higher sensitivity or new applications for their technology.By Mark Terry Although mass spectrometry can safely
Promega offers the ONE-Glo luciferase assay reagent, exhibiting reproducibility with fewer false positives while generating an extended bright light signal.
Millipore’s CellCiphr cytotoxicity profiling assay kit, developed in collaboration with Cellumen, detects drug-induced hepatotoxicity.
Scientists have gotten around objections to human stem cell research by reworking therapeutic cloning and mining a new source of adult stem cells, but a number of challenges remain.
ACD/IntelliXtract from Advanced Chemistry Development allows researchers to identifying and elucidate the structures of related compounds by LC/MS with related fragment screening.
PerkinElmer launched a comprehensive assay development service for high-performance, highly sensitive assays.
Thermo Fisher Scientific now offers a series of software and hardware modules to enhance the functionality of its HCS HCA platform. These include the introduction of the Thermo Scientific HCSExplorer informatics software, new functionality of its BioApplications line of image.
Using an expression quantitative trait loci approach could identify genetic variations affecting growth and obesity in mice, and may have applications in humans.
Caliper Life Sciences launched the Caliper LabChip EZ Reader series for in-house kinase profiling. The series includes the new EZ Reader II system, a bench-top reader to use for real-time kinetic analysis with push-button operation, and the EZ Reader system.
In an effort to fight back against the stifling effect of scientific knowledge being kept under wraps, researchers are creating an open-source community that allows them to advance science by sharing data.
Fluorescent proteins have been available for several years, but new instruments that measure fluorescence have allowed researchers to use such proteins to study gene expression.
The genetic sequencing of many infectious agents has allowed researchers to use DNA microarrays to study disease. Scientists are exploring a number of areas, including host-pathogen interactions and DNA-protein interactions.
