In the early testing strategy, population identification was critically important as targeted mutation analysis
NeoGenomics now provides mutation analysis
of the following genes, either individually or as a group: SF3B1, U2AF1, SRSF2, ZRSR2, RUNX1, EZH2, ASXL1, TET2, TP53, NRAS, CBL, PTPN11, IDH1/2 and ETV6.
showed that out of 70 endometrial cancer samples, 34% samples showed Kras gene mutation in exon 1.
This new high-performance platform includes a complete software package for the study of genetic and epigenetic variation of genes, providing CpG methylation allele quantification and mutation analysis
. These studies are used for a wide range of clinical research, for example the identification and tracking of changes involved in various forms of cancer.
Thirty-two contributions are organized into sections on automatic test case generation; techniques, methods and tools; model-based testing; PhD papers; fault localization and prediction; constraint-based testing and constraint solving; posters; model-based mutation; mutation analysis
tools; experimentation with mutation; and mutation for security testing.
Last fall, Beckman Coulter introduced the CEQ 8800 Genetic Analysis System featuring sample tracking capabilities and higher throughput for applications ranging from mutation analysis
to SNP scoring and confirmatory sequencing.
These tests include polymerase chain reaction mutation analysis
, linkage analysis, triplet repeat analysis, and sequence analysis.
by the reverse dot blot technique (Roche Molecular Systems, Somerville, N.J.) indicated Jake (II:1) carried both a AF508 and G551D mutation in the CFTR gene (Figure 1).
As shown by Reynolds et al, (43) mutation analysis
using next-generation sequencing can be successfully performed on residual cell pellets derived from LBC samples.
of the TCIRG1 gene was performed using direct DNA sequencing of polymerase chain reaction-amplified exons.
Menkes disease (MD)(OMIM: 309400) is also known as kinky hair disease, trichopoliodystrophy, and steely hair.1 It is a rare disorder with frequency being estimated to be 1 in 114,000-250,000 live births.2 Menkes disease is diagnosed on the basis of history, physical findings and lab investigations including copper and ceruloplasmin level as well as hair shaft microscopy.3 Mutation analysis
leads to the definitive diagnosis.
