A new renaissance for antisense in the era of lncRNA

Noncoding RNAs such as lncRNA, are much more prevalent in humans than protein-coding RNA. Antisense oligonucleotides (ASO), previously used for knockout experiments, are being employed to study the role of noncoding RNAs in gene regulation. ASOs provide several advantages over siRNAs (and DsiRNA) for this purpose.

Site-directed mutagenesis—improvements to established methods

Site-directed mutagenesis techniques have relied primarily on PCR and standard cloning methods. Read about some of the common cloning methods used for mutagenesis and how double-stranded DNA fragments (gBlocks Gene Fragments) can save you both time and money.

Target enrichment facilitates focused next generation sequencing

Understand the rationale and benefits of enriching subsets of the genome (target enrichment by hybrid capture) prior to sequencing. Use this strategy for genotyping, identifying splice variants and indels, and profiling genomic recombination events as well as viral and transposon integration sites.
