As the world population ages, Alzheimer’s disease will become a significant socio-economic burden to the health care system. That’s why Dr. Lesley Cheng of La Trobe University, who recently moved from The University of Melbourne, set out to identify the disease specific exosomal microRNA (miRNA) biomarkers associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in serum using deep-sequencing technology.

Researchers at Queen’s University of Belfast Use Partek Software in First Steps Toward Therapies for Chronic Kidney DiseaseJanuary 18, 2015
Large, genome-wide quantitative evaluation of DNA methylation associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) reveals several genes with strong biological evidence for differential methylation. RNA-Seq analysis was performed using Partek® Flow® and Partek® Genomics Suite® to confirm the functional role of differential methylation in ELMO1 and PRKAG2. Findings were validated by functional enrichment using Partek® Pathway™. These results could be the first step toward identifying epigenetic therapies for CKD.
Using Partek Software in Leukemia ResearchFebruary 3, 2014
A study by Alexander Thompson, PhD of the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, Queen’s University of differential gene expression in cytogenetically normal subtype of acute myeloid leukemia cells reveals a HOX/TALE signature that may have specific prognostic value. Direct gene targeting of HOXA/PBX3 sensitizes these cells to standard chemotherapy, laying a foundation for a novel therapeutic strategy.
