A SINE insertion in ATP1B2 in Belgian Shepherd dogs affected by spongy degeneration with cerebellar ataxia (SDCA2)

August 2017

Authors:
Nico Mauri, Miriam Kleiter, Elisabeth Dietschi, Michael Leschnik, et al.

Info:
Scientists in Europe and the US studied the genetic basis for a neurodegenerative disorder in dogs. Through whole genome sequencing data, they found a SINE insertion in the ATP1B2 gene that appears to be causative for a subtype of the disorder. The team used PippinHT for size-selecting cDNA fragments prior to sequencing.

Dual redundant sequencing strategy: Full-length gene characterisation of 1056 novel and confirmatory HLA alleles

August 2017

Authors:
Albrecht V, Zweiniger C, Surendranath V, Lang K, et al.

Info:
Scientists in Germany describe a high-throughput approach for characterizing novel HLA alleles. The method involves sequencing the full gene with PacBio and MiSeq. For PacBio sequencing, libraries are sized with BluePippin.

Intestinal Enteroendocrine Lineage Cells Possess Homeostatic and Injury-Inducible Stem Cell Activity

July 2017

Authors:
Kelley Yan, Olivier Gevaert, Grace Zheng, Benedict Anchang, et al.

Info:
In this project from scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine and other institutions, comparative RNA-seq was used to analyze putative mouse intestinal stem cells. The team’s findings have implications for cellular plasticity and better understanding stem cells in general. Pippin Prep was used to size libraries before sequencing.

Differential regulation of miRNA and mRNA expression in the myocardium of Nrf2 knockout mice

July 2017

Authors:
Justin Quiles, Madhusudhanan Narasimhan, Gobinath Shanmugam, Brett Milash, John Hoidal, and Namakkal Rajasekaran

Info:
Scientists from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and other institutions studied a gene previously associated with oxidative stress, analyzing differential expression in knockout and wild type mouse hearts. They found that the gene may regulate cardiac microRNAs. The team used Pippin Prep to size libraries before sequencing on an Illumina HiSeq.

Transcriptome Profiling Using Single-Molecule Direct RNA Sequencing Approach for In-depth Understanding of Genes in Secondary Metabolism Pathways of Camellia sinensis

July 2017

Authors:
Qingshan Xu, Junyan Zhu, Shiqi Zhao, Yan Hou, et al.

Info:
Scientists from Anhui Agricultural University in China performed long-read transcriptome sequencing of the tea plant Camellia sinensis to better understand its production of flavonoids, theanine, and caffeine. They used PacBio sequencing with BluePippin size selection.
