The answer to what's killing the world's coral reefs may be found in a tiny chip that fits in the palm of your hand. Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Merced are using an innovative DNA array developed at Berkeley Lab to catalog the microbes that live among coral in the tropical waters off the coast of Puerto Rico. They found that as coral becomes diseased, the microbial population it supports grows much more diverse. It's unclear whether...

Roche NimbleGen has expanded its growing line of tools for analyzing the epigenome and genome-wide transcriptional regulation mechanisms by launching HD2 (2.1 million probes) arrays and services for chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP-chip). NimbleGen ChIP-chip HD2 arrays now provide more than a 5-fold increase in probe density per array, which allows for increasing the coverage of key biological features, such as promoters and CpG islands, and decreasing the number of arrays needed to...

A study just published in the American Journal of Cardiology describes the use of Progenika's LIPOchip in a large-scale screening of over 1,200 subjects showing clinical symptoms of Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). The study led by Fernando Civeira, PhD, MD from the "Miguel Servet" Hospital in Zaragoza and Miguel Pocovi, PhD from the University of Zaragoza, was perfomed in order to identify patient populations most likely to benefit from genetic testing. The study concluded that the...

By Muradyan, Artur Boldt, Vivien; Steininger, Anne; Stabentheiner, Stephanie; Tebel, Katrin; Kreutzberger, Jurgen; Muller, Ines; Madle, Hannelore; Popper, Helmut H; Ullmann, Reinhard The accumulation of chromosomal aberrations is a characteristic feature of tumor development. However, an understanding of tumorigenesis that assumes that changes in DNA copy number always cause equivalent changes in the corresponding RNA and protein levels is an oversimplification and completely ignores the...

Researchers from France investigating DNA copy number changes associated with genetic disorders have reported the development and validation of a Roche NimbleGen CGH multiplex, microarray-based research method for detecting genomic deletions and duplications at high-resolution. The findings, published in the August 5 issue of the journal Human Mutation (1), identified highly precise, exon-level variants in DNA samples from affected individuals and carriers of a range of human diseases...

Today, scientists from Applied Biosystems (NYSE:ABI) will present data at the Connecticut Stem Cell Technology Symposium revealing how the company's ultra-high-throughput genomic analysis platform, the SOLiD(TM) System, generated genome-wide expression profiling data at the single cell level. Gene expression signatures at the single cell level have the potential to reveal details about cell fate and will potentially accelerate the discovery of biomarkers for disease. This finding represents...


Word of the Day
omphalos
  • The navel or umbilicus.
  • In Greek archaeology: A central boss, as on a shield, a bowl, etc.
  • A sacred stone in the temple of Apollo at Delphi, believed by the Greeks to mark the 'navel' or exact center-point of the earth.
'Omphalos' comes from the ancient Greek.
