MicroRNA sorting in exosomes and determination of cell fate

Liquid biopsy, that is, sampling and analysis of DNA, RNA and proteins found in blood or other body fluids, offers a potentially non-invasive and cost-effective way to gain insight into cancer and other disease detection and progression. Within blood, both healthy and diseased cells release small vesicles termed extracellular vesicles (EVs) that carry information from… Read article →

miRNA-seq vs qPCR in 2017: an update

Time marches on and technology with it, and these new advances yield new perspectives. Of particular interest to this blog is the changing technology and perspective on microRNA profiling methods. Two years ago, I wrote about the pros and cons of 3 methods commonly used for miRNA expression analysis, NGS, qPCR and microarray, and concluded… Read article →

Webinar highlights – Maximizing miRNA-seq success from liquid biopsy samples

Development of markers that facilitate earlier and non-invasive diagnosis is a primary goal of disease research. This is where microRNAs come in. Studies have indicated that the expression levels of these non-coding RNA molecules are altered in disease states, including cancer and neurodegeneration. Evidence of their presence in biofluids means that their potential as important… Read article →
