Fibroblast growth factor 2 induces mesenchymal stem cells to differentiate into tenocytes through the MAPK pathway

Authors:
Tao-Yi Cai, Wei Zhu, Xiong-Sheng Chen, Sheng-Yuan Zhou, Lian-Shun Jia and Yan-Qing Sun

Info:
From the Second Military Medical University in Shanghai, China, this qPCR gene expression study looks at the effect of fibroblast growth factor mesenchymal stems cells. The BluePippin was used to size-select cDNAs.

De novo transcriptome assembly of drought tolerant CAM plants, Agave deserti and Agave tequilana

August 2013

Authors:
Stephen M Gross, Jeffrey A Martin, June Simpson, María Jazmín Abraham-Juarez, Zhong Wang and Axel Visel

Info:
Agave is an interesting plant for bioenergy study. This paper provides transcriptome data of two strains. The Pippin Prep was used to size select cDNAs at 250 or 500 bp, followed by TrueSeq library construction and sequencing on the Illumina HiSeq.

Comparative genomics of Campylobacter concisus isolates reveals genetic diversity and provides insights into disease association

August 2013

Authors:
Nandan P Deshpande, Nadeem O Kaakoush, Marc R Wilkins and Hazel M Mitchell

Info:
Collaborators at the University of New South Wales sequence several strains of Campylobacter concisus from healthy and diseased (Crohn’s disease and gastroenteritis) individuals for a comparative study. Results showed genetice diversity and identified pathways that may be associated with the diseases. Pippin Prep was used to size select libraries for Illumina HiSeq.

A quantitative reference transcriptome for Nematostella vectensis early embryonic development: a pipeline for de novo assembly in emerging model systems

June 2013

Authors:
Sarah Tulin, Derek Aguiar, Sorin Istrail, and Joel Smith

Info:
Scientists from the Marine Biological Laboratory and Brown University developed a new pipeline for de novo transcriptome assembly that can be used with organisms lacking a well-annotated reference genome. The paper describes library preparation and computational analysis processes. Pippin Prep was used for size selection in a standard Illumina workflow and also in conjunction with an Epicentre ScriptSeq™ kit.

Phylogeographic Origin of Helicobacter pylori Determines Host-Adaptive Responses upon Coculture with Gastric Epithelial Cells

July 2013

Authors:
Alexander Sheh, Rupesh Chaturvedi, D. Scott Merrell, Pelayo Correa, Keith T. Wilson, James G. Fox

Info:
A study of gene expression comparing several strains of H. pylori. The BluePippin was used to size-select fragments to construct paired-end libraries for Illumina MiSeq.
