Live webinar on plant microRNA profiling

Plant microRNAs are critical for processes such as development, disease resistance and stress response. (Learn more with our previous blog post!) These small non-coding RNAs are thought to regulate gene expression in plants at the post-transcriptional level by targeting mRNAs for cleavage. Targeted alterations in gene expression are mediated by differential expression of hundreds of mature… Read article →

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 →
