The Whole Picture: Total RNA Sequencing

        It is well known that scientists have been interested in studying the transcriptome of organisms since the popularization of microarrays. However, a major drawback of transcriptome analysis utilizing microarray technology is the requirement that the target of interest must already be mapped. The introduction of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has been able … [Read more…]

Epigenetics via ChIP-Seq (Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Sequencing)

As technology progresses, so does the curiosity of scientific minds around the globe. As more and more scientists shift from traditional DNA sequencing methods to massively parallel DNA sequencing, the new discoveries are increasing at an exponential rate. Such discoveries come with the popularization of chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing or ChIP-Seq. ChIP sequencing is able to … [Read more…]

Genome Sequencing Service

Genome sequencing is described as the process of determining the order of the nucleotide bases within a certain length strand of DNA. You can sequence a short piece, the whole genome, or parts of the genome (exomes – parts of the genome that contain genes). The knowledgeable team at MR DNA Lab (also known as … [Read more…]

It has become a must-read source of real-time industry news and information with regular updates, news and discussions from the leading minds of today. The advent of Twitter has allowed for folks to have real-time conversations with thought leaders across the field. An upcoming researcher in genomics … [Read more…]

Microbial Communities: Microbiome, Metagenome, Microbiota

Microbiome and microbiota explain the collective genomes of the microorganisms that inhabit an environmental niche or the microorganisms themselves. Micobiota are the microorganisms present within a particular environment. The approach to describe microbial diversity relies on analyzing the gene diversity 16S ribosomal RNA (16S rRNA) through next-generation sequencing. The “S” in 16S rRNA genes survey … [Read more…]
