Bringing the International Space Station into the Molecular Age
Posted on Thursday, March 10, 2022 By
With sights set on returning to the Moon and eventually Mars, NASA microbiologists create modified-for-spaceflight molecular workflows to diagnose potential medically significant pathogens in near real-time, entirely onboard the spacecraft.
Bisulfite sequencing, but at what cost?
Posted on Thursday, February 17, 2022 By
Why do so many core sequencing labs decline to perform bisulfite-seq? Let’s review the intrinsic risks of bisulfite conversion and then discuss how enzymatic cytosine conversion overcomes these challenges, enabling more biologically meaningful results at a lower cost with application versatility.
