The Neonatal and Adult Human Testis Defined at the Single-Cell Level.
Spermatogenesis has been intensely studied in rodents but remains poorly understood in humans. Here, we used single-cell RNA sequencing to analyze human testes. Clustering analysis of neonatal testes reveals several…
New technology could detect cancer in blood before symptoms develop
Right now, most diseases are diagnosed after a patient develops symptoms, but a local company wants to change that. It's developed an ultra-sensitive blood protein test that company leaders hope…
UK Company to Develop Next Generation CRISPR Gene Editing
The British company Horizon Discovery has obtained a license to develop a CRISPR-based gene editing tool from Rutgers University, USA, with potential applications in cancer and genetic disease.
Alzheimer’s might be detectable with biomarker test 16 year before onset of symptoms
Researchers with the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN) have found that serum neurofilament light chain (Nfl) levels could aid in diagnosing and monitoring the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Horizon Discovery extends CRISPR screening to primary human T cells
Horizon Discovery has introduced a new CRISPR screening service for use on primary human T cells, which will be valuable in researching biological processes and developing new drugs.
Single-cell analysis reveals congruence between kidney organoids and human fetal kidney
Human kidney organoids hold promise for studying development, disease modelling and drug screening. However, the utility of stem cell-derived kidney tissues will depend on how faithfully these replicate normal fetal…
BioTek Announces New Epoch™ 2 Microplate Spectrophotometer
BioTek Instruments introduces their next generation Epoch™ 2 Microplate Spectrophotometer; with added features that enable multiple conveniences for performing absorbance measurements. Epoch 2 now includes monochromator-based individual wavelength selection or wavelength scanning…
