Optimizing multiplex qPCR for detecting infectious diseases and biothreat agents in the field—Learn how researchers at Tetracore (Rockville, MD, USA) develop large sets of robust probe-based qPCR assays for use in a multiplex format to detect infectious diseases and bio-terrorism threat agents. They discuss the need to: use probe dyes compatible on common PCR instruments, maintain low background with multiple probes, and reformulate assays to address viral mutation; and how ZEN™ Double-Quenched Probes have helped meet these criteria.

Building biological factories for renewable and sustainable products—Find out how scientists at Amyris (Emeryville, CA, USA) use genetic engineering and screening technologies to design microorganisms that convert plant-sourced sugars into target molecules, including pharmaceuticals, biofuels, polymers, flavors, and fragrances.

Delivering comprehensive genomic profiling for clinical cancer care—Read how scientists at Foundation Medicine, Inc. (Cambridge, MA, USA) are leading a transformation in cancer care by helping clinicians to select appropriate treatment options for each patient, informed by a thorough understanding of the molecular changes specific to their disease. Read about the use of xGen® Lockdown® Probes in their flagship FoundationOne® Test.
