Targeted Resequencing Enables High-Throughput Detection of Somatic Mosaicism
Dr. Saumya Jamuar uses targeted resequencing on the MiSeq® System to identify rare mosaic mutations in neural malformations.
Seeking Dyslipidemia Variants with LipidSeq
Robarts Research Institute researchers design a custom targeted resequencing panel to profile lipid-related genetic variants.
Splatology and the MiniSeq System
Dr. Mattia Prosperi’s winning entry for the MiniSeq Scientific Challenge was truly imaginative. He and his team at the University of Florida sequence the DNA of dead insect remains found on his new MINI Cooper (the prize for winning the competition) to track the spread of mosquito-bourne viruses in Florida.
Bzzzzzzzz, it’s the MiniSeq System
The MiniSeq System will be the honeybee’s best friend, thanks to Dr. Hongmei Li-Byarlay who won 2nd place in the MiniSeq Scientific Challenge. She’ll be using the MiniSeq System to sequence Apis mellifera (European honeybee) to identify genes related to immune response and antiviral defense.
Identifying New Breast Cancer Variants
Finding gene mutations associated with a predisposition to breast cancer is important to Una McVeigh, 3rd place winner of the MiniSeq Scientific Challenge. She has a family history of early-onset breast cancer and will be using the MiniSeq System to advance her studies.
