Transfection of cells is one of the main techniques used to influence gene expression. Most primary cells and human skeletal myoblasts (SkMC) in particular are very difficult to transfect, whereas for cell lines such as C2C12, many suitable transfection reagents and protocols are available. Few ...
Smoking behavior is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Moreover, smoking initiation and smoking persistence have a heritability of at least 50%. A large body of work has been dedicated to associating multiple genetic markers of neu

The Genome Sequencer FLX System from 454 Life Sciences and Roche Applied Science is a versatile sequencing platform suitable for a wide range of applications, including de novo sequencing and assembly of genomic DNA, transcriptome sequencing, small R
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are naturally occurring, highly conserved families of transcripts (18-25 nt in length) that are processed from larger hairpin precursors. Both plant and animal genomes encode miRNAs, and to date, there are over 4000 mature miRNA tr
The teleost zebrafish is a widely used model organism for the study of developmental and disease-related processes in vertebrates, including humans. Understanding these processes at a molecular and cellular level frequently requires the estimation of
Profiling Using the LightCycler® 480 System
Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) has become the de facto standard for nucleic acid quantification. This achievement is due in large part to its sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, large dynamic range of linear quantification, and its speed. The qPCR
A major problem in some areas of cancer research is the difficulty of transfecting a significant number of the cells of interest, while minimizing the cytotoxic or other off-target effects of the transfection event itself. It is well-known that the use of some transfection reagents results in ...
More flexibility, more breakthrough applications - Roche continues to unlock the sequencing secrets that will change the world
In 2005, the Genome Sequencer 20 System was introduced into the global life science market. Based on the revolutionary 454 sequencing technology, this system is able to generate hundreds of thousands of sequence reads in a few hours at a fraction of
A microbial genome sequence provides a wealth of data and specific information that cannot be obtained by other experimental approaches. A genome sequence can be regarded as the starting point for detailed bioinformatics analysis, metabolic reconstru
