Deep-Sea Corals of the Red Sea – True Survivors

How do deep-sea corals survive in the warm, saline, oxygen- and food-deprived environment of the Red Sea? In a recent study, Yum LK et. al describes what happened when they went diving for answers. To get started, the team isolated RNA using flash frozen coral powder from three deep-sea coral species of the Red Sea… Read article →

Webinar series: Cancer Research Week @ QIAGEN!

Cancer research has come a long way, and is accelerating even faster in the age of next-generation sequencing (NGS). Identifying mutations, discovering biomarkers, and profiling DNA and RNA from single cells has given us more specific and personalized insights than ever, and advances in NGS are largely to thank for these opportunities. This September, we’re offering a… Read article →

Effective genomic DNA removal – crucial for accurate gene expression analysis

Whether you are working with formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue or normal tissue samples, the elimination of genomic DNA (gDNA) from your RNA preps is crucial to obtain reliable results in gene expression analysis, especially if you want to determine the gene expression pattern in a specific cell or under specific conditions. Possible consequences of… Read article →
