The $11-billion Webb telescope aims to probe the early Universe

Lisa Dang wasn’t even born when astronomers started planning the most ambitious and complex space observatory ever built. Now, three decades later, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is finally about to launch, and Dang has scored some of its first observing time — in a research area that didn’t…

Single-cell DNA and RNA sequencing reveals the dynamics of intra-tumor heterogeneity in a colorectal cancer model | BMC Biology

Organoid culture of small intestinal cells and lentiviral transduction C57BL/6J mice and BALB/cAnu/nu immune-deficient nude mice were purchased from CLEA Japan (Tokyo, Japan). The small intestine was harvested from wild-type male C57BL/6J mice at 3–5 weeks of age (Additional file 1: Figure S9A). Crypts were purified and dissociated into single cells,…

Dissemination of Mycobacterium abscessus via global transmission networks

Dataset construction, cluster identification and definition of DCCs Whole genome sequencing of two collections of isolates from Manchester, UK, and the Netherlands was carried out as previously described2. Briefly, DNA was extracted from colony sweeps of subcultured samples before to paired-end sequencing using the Illumina HiSeq platform. These samples were…

Genes in Space: Students’ experiments could help humans travel in deep space

Students Aarthi Vijayakumar, Rebecca Li, Michelle Sung and David Li won the competition in 2018, and their project became the Genes in Space-6 experiment. The student team’s investigation made history. For the first time in space, NASA astronauts successfully edited DNA using CRISPR/Cas9 technology while working on the Genes in…

Oncogene Concatenated Enriched Amplicon Nanopore Sequencing for rapid, accurate, and affordable somatic mutation detection | Genome Biology

Stochastic Amplicon Ligation. DNA samples for oncology sequencing are typically extracted from FFPE tissues and can have average lengths of less than 500 nt due to accumulated chemical damage [18]. We developed the Stochastic Amplicon Ligation (SAL) method to enzymatically concatenate many short DNA molecules together to utilize the long-read…

Defects in 8-oxo-guanine repair pathway cause high frequency of C > A substitutions in neuroblastoma

Significance The collection of large amounts of whole-genome sequencing data allowed for identification of mutational signatures, which are characteristic combinations of substitutions in the context of neighboring bases. The clinical significance of these mutational signatures is still largely unknown. In neuroblastoma, we showed that high levels of cytosine > adenine…

Predicting and characterizing a cancer dependency map of tumors with deep learning

INTRODUCTION The development of novel cancer therapies requires knowledge of specific biological pathways to target individual tumors and eradicate cancer cells. Toward this goal, the landscape of genetic vulnerabilities of cancer, or the cancer dependency map, is being systematically profiled. Using RNA interference (RNAi) loss-of-function screens, Marcotte et al. (1),…
