Cells and alleles in droplets

Two new papers from the McCarroll lab describe ways of using nanoliter droplets to answer questions in genetics and biology.  Droplets provide a way of scaling molecular biological reactions across tens of thousands of tiny reaction compartments.   In Drop-phase, Jack Regan, Nolan Kamitaki and colleagues describe a way to quickly […]

DNA replication varies among humans

A process as fundamental as replication of a genome varies from person – shaped by common, inherited genetic variation that can also affect risk of cancer. The work is described in a new paper by Amnon Koren and colleagues in Cell.
