Circulating Tumor DNA Easier to Spot with Size Selection

A bioRxiv preprint from scientists at Cancer Research UK and Cambridge University Hospitals offers a look at how DNA size selection can be used to enhance results of circulating tumor DNA studies. Their analysis indicates that adding a simple sizing … more »

Poster: Better Cell-Free DNA Analysis with Pippin + Rubicon Genomics

Recently we blogged about the rise of cell-free DNA studies, and how precise size selection is one tool that can help researchers isolate DNA of interest for further analysis (such as sorting out fetal from maternal genetic material). At the AGBT … more »

Size Selection Has Utility for Cell-Free DNA Studies

The rise of research studies and diagnostic tests looking at cell-free DNA — particularly fetal DNA in a mother’s bloodstream — has happened with astonishing speed. Prenatal genetic testing, for instance, has already supplanted many invasive clinical tests such as … more »
