Full Genome Sequencing of All Animal Species Continues, but Sequencing of Invertebrate Species Lags Behind That of Vertebrate Species

Scientists working to sequence all 1.66 million animal species say this is a missed opportunity to better understand our own genetics; such research would identify biomarkers useful for clinical laboratory testing For 23 years, the world’s genomic scientists have been on a mission to sequence the genomes of all animal species. And they’ve made great progress. However, according to a recent study conducted by researchers at Washington State University (WSU) and Brigham Young University (BYU),...

In Vivo Pathology Testing Might Use Injectable Microbeads to Detect Excessive Glucose Levels

Japanese Researchers Used Fluorescence to Accurately Measure Blood Glucose Levels in Mice In Japan, researchers are developing a new in vivo diagnostic test technology that can monitor blood glucose in real time. Pathologists and clinical laboratory managers will quickly grasp the implications of these implantable, fluorescable microbeads that can be used to accurately and continuously measure blood sugar levels. The Japanese researchers created tiny microbeads that glow when in contact with...
