Digital RNA sequencing explained:  a new webinar by Dr. Eric Lader

RNA sequencing uses high-throughput DNA sequencing technology to map and quantify transcriptomes and isoforms. So what is digital RNA sequencing? How does it differ from standard RNA sequencing? What are its applications? In this webinar, “Introduction to digital RNA sequencing,” Dr. Eric Lader walks us through the history of transcriptome profiling techniques, starting from Northern blot,… Read article →

March webinar series: Explore the host response and defense mechanisms

The immune system is an intricate host defense system of unique, yet highly coordinated responses to pathogens. The immune response is divided into two phases – innate and adaptive. Innate immunity provides the first line of defense through different families of pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs), such as Toll-like receptors (TLRs). Adaptive immunity, in the form of… Read article →

Tackle the challenges of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) research and non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT)

At the frontier of liquid biopsy, NIPT (noninvasive prenatal testing) is increasingly being used to screen and test chromosomal abnormalities by analyzing cell-free fetal DNA circulating in maternal blood. Similarly, since disease-specific mutations or alterations of the circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) are frequently found in serum samples of cancer patients, research into cctDNA testing as… Read article →

New advances in long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) research

As a novel class of RNA, long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) plays important roles in gene regulation via a variety of mechanisms. Current research is deepening our understanding of the complex and sometimes contradictory roles of lncRNA. For example, lncRNAs can compete with transcription, but at other times they can support transcription, recruiting specific epigenetic factors… Read article →
