Sparse full length sequencing – a highly multiplexed ribosomal RNA depletion-based RNA sequencing platform
The need to reduce per sample cost of RNA-seq profiling for scalable data generation has led to the emergence of highly multiplexed RNA-seq. These technologies utilize barcoding of cDNA sequences in order to combine multiple samples into a single sequencing lane to be separated during data processing. In this study, Boston University researchers report the ...

Repurposing drugs to outsmart cancers
In an article published today by SAGE Publishing, investigators from The Nagourney Cancer Institute and The Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, announced a new approach to identifying effective treatments for patients with advanced metastatic cancers. A drug commonly used to treat kidney and liver cancer was discovered effective for breast cancer, which may open new drug therapies to patients regardless of tumor type.
