          Those icons make it look like it was made by PlayStation. Maybe they could sell it in piano black?

            You fooled me with the iPhone. Didn't they at one time say it would be shipping with an iPod?

              OK, I am boring: how about IT? Spoken in capitalized. Stands for Ion Torrent (of course) and since IT is a machine then the pronoun is appropriate. Talk about the lab could include phrases such as:

              IT needs more reagents.
              IT is going to be hard at work today.
              IT had a tummy-ache and barfed all over its chip.


              Anagrams do not do much. The only on I liked was "Rotten Iron" which really does not say much about the machine. So IT it is.

                    Our was delivered to addenbrookes hospital for a Mr Ian Torrent. We call it Ian.
                    Don't brag too hard, get your lengthy training done and get your first run on.

                      I think Ian is a nice name for it.

                      Unfortunately we're waiting for a centrifuge so we can get cracking ...

                          When I saw the brochure for the first time, the iPod caught my attention. What is it used for?
                          What kind of especial centrifuge do you need for it? Our Life Tech representative doesn´t have all the details for it yet.
                          We are currently writing a grant to buy one of these babies, so any info about it will be welcome.
                          Thanks

                            the post emulsion enrichment is tedious but the protocol supplied is worse. Make sure you get the dilution right for the emulsion. It's not well described in the protocol but it's the critical point.
                            Automation is on it's way and will make a massive difference to enrichment.

                              More tedious than for 454?

                                Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                                by seqadmin




                                The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                                Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
                                by seqadmin


                                In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
