#ALT# PicoGreen Automated dsDNA Assay Kit

Double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) must be quantified and normalized before it can be used in very many applications in genomics. These include PCR and next-generation DNA sequencing.This article describes one way to automate this workflow.

   Study shows blood stem cells compensate for immune cell deficienciesStudy shows blood stem cells compensate for immune cell deficiencies
 
Researchers have shown that if certain blood stem cells that produce immune cells are deficient, other blood stem cells compensate by overproducing the immune cells that are lacking.
 
   Mapping the Genes Responsible for PluripotencyMapping the Genes Responsible for Pluripotency
 
Dr. Atilgan Yilmaz and his team have developed a method by which they can produce haploid human embryonic stem cells from oocytes. They combined this technique with CRISPR-Cas9 to generate an atlas of the genome, containing the functions of over 18,000 genes.
 
 Study establishes the importance of haploid cells
 
Study establishes the importance of haploid cellsA new study has found that when the cell replication process exceeds or has less than a pair of chromosome set (a genome), destabilization occurs.
 
 
 Researchers call for new genetic tests for congenital diseases
 
Researchers call for new genetic tests for congenital diseasesResearchers have discovered that genetic mutations called epivariations are the cause of certain neurodevelopmental disorders and congenital diseases.
 
 
 Genome dark matter provides clues to fighting prostate cancer
 
Genome dark matter provides clues to fighting prostate cancerThrough studying the dark matter of the human genome, a team from the University of Michigan has shed light on how the hormone androgen drives prostate cancer and suggested a potential target for future therapy.
 
 
 Research suggests link between faulty gene, alcohol, and heart failure
 
Research suggests link between faulty gene, alcohol, and heart failureThe researchers investigated faulty versions of a gene called titin which are carried by one in 100 people or 600,000 people in the UK.
 
 
 Researchers develop innovative tool for female reproductive genetics
 
Researchers develop innovative tool for female reproductive geneticsThe fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is a powerful model organism for studying animal and human development and disease. It is low cost, generates rapidly, and there are many tools to genetically modify its cells.
