Hidden Microbiome

The Center for Disease Control reported that lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI), otherwise known as Pneumonia, were responsible for approximately 53,000 deaths in 2013. In 2010, 37,000 patients with Pneumonia died while admitted in the hospital. According to the World Health Organization, Pneumonia was responsible for 15% of all deaths of children under 5 years […]

Microbiome of Breast Milk

This study employed the use of barcoded primers to sequence the V6 hypervariable region and was able to determine that despite the differing physiological and hormonal factors between the 39 women there was no alteration to the bacterial composition found in the breast milk.

ChIP-Seq Sequencing

Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) is a powerful method for investigating interactions between specific proteins, genomic DNA, and RNA. Recent advancement in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technique allows us to sequence the ChIP DNA with high resolution, enabling us to perform unbiased and genome-wide mapping of epigenetic changes. Scientists at MR DNA are proficient in ChIP-Seq using […]

Whole-Transcriptome Sequencing (RNA-Seq)

Whole transcriptome analysis is important to understand genome-wide differences in RNA expression which allows Scientists to understand how altered genetic variants changes in gene expression. RNA-seq method can help to sequence different types of RNAs such as total RNA, small RNA (miRNA, tRNA and rRNA). The RNA-seq can contribute to understand the complexity of diseases […]

Genome Sequencing Service

  Genome sequencing is described as the process of determining the order of the nucleotide bases within a certain length strand of DNA. You can sequence a short piece, the whole genome, or parts of the genome (exomes – parts of the genome that contain genes). The knowledgeable team at MR DNA Lab (also known […]

#DNA on Twitter

Tweet-tweet! Nowadays, Twitter is not merely a social-network. It has become a must-read source of real-time industry news and information with regular updates, news and discussions from the leading minds of today. The advent of Twitter has allowed for folks to have real-time conversations with thought leaders across the field. An upcoming researcher in genomics […]

Microbial Communities: Microbiome, Metagenome, Microbiota

What consists of microbial communities analysis? Microbiome and microbiota explain the collective genomes of the microorganisms that inhabit an environmental niche or the microorganisms themselves. Microbiota are the microorganisms present within a particular environment. The approach to describe microbial diversity relies on analyzing the gene diversity 16S ribosomal RNA (16S rRNA) through next-generation sequencing. The […]

Next-Generation Sequencing Services (DNA)

Scientists are now able to elucidate the microbiome of human diseases, agricultural and other natural, environments. Especially at MR DNA Lab, scientists are dedicated to microbiome research. Their method development has opened doors to research around the world. This initiative is one component of the MR DNA program and constitutes a major NIH effort to […]

Organic Molecules: Nucleic Acids (RNA and DNA)

Organic molecules are classified in four classes: carbs, lipids, proteins, and last but not least nucleic acids. There are two principle nucleic acids, ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). DNA is a double polymer of nucleotides, whereas RNA is only once strand. RNA strands are substantially shorter than DNA. The reason why DNA strands […]
