The only way to confirm heteropaternal superfecundation in human twins is genetic testing.
COFFEE BREAK NEWS FOR LIFE SCIENTISTS
In the last 15 years life science research and workflows have been transformed by new techniques and lab automation.
Short Coffee Break Conversation about the Future of Sequencing
Meet Fang Chen, BGI – Beijing Genomics Institute, the world’s largest genomics organization.
Elsevier’s Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) journal is a new open access, peer-reviewed international journal focused on the application of qualitative and quantitative molecular methodologies to all areas of clinical and life sciences.
New research shows that dogs can beat expensive modern diagnostic methods in detecting cancer.
Meet Jan Hellemans, CEO of Biogazelle, focused on unraveling the coding and non-coding regions of the genome.
Recently there’s been a lot of excitement building up within the molecular biology community about sequencing long reads, and by “long reads” I mean reads of several kb in length…
The method of choice for nucleic acid (DNA, RNA) quantification in all areas of molecular biology is real-time PCR or quantitative PCR (qPCR).
Will ddPCR replace qPCR technology?
Amplification efficiency higher than 100% would mean that in each qPCR cycle, more than two copies of the target sequence have been generated.
Is this possible?
