Biocompare || Introduction to Spatial Metabolomics

Metabolomics—often referred to as the youngest of the omics—provides key insight into phenotype. However, bulk metabolomics requires the homogenization of the sample and is thus unable to discern metabolic differences at a cellular level.

Biocompare || Peptidomics: Methods in the search for molecular disease signatures

Peptides play important roles in human physiology. They present as intact peptides or can arise from protein degradation. Regardless of the source, peptidomics—the characterization of intact peptides in a biological sample—is fast emerging as an approach to uncover another layer in human health and disease.

Bio-IT World || Lessons From the Recent HCA 2022 General Meeting: Applying Single-Cell Data to Clinical Decision Making

The recent Human Cell Atlas (HCA) 2022 General Meeting, hosted in Vienna, Austria, provided a great opportunity for me to catch up on progress towards the HCA’s goal of mapping every cell type in the human body. I also got the chance to hear presentations that either highlighted new insights gleaned from HCA data or described the outcomes from ongoing collaborations between research groups.

Clinical Laboratory || Paradigm4 introduces Precision Cell Atlas for REVEAL: SingleCell app

Paradigm4 has introduced the ‘Precision Cell Atlas’ as an integral component of its REVEAL: SingleCell app. The Precision Cell Atlas enables scientists to create a custom cell atlas by selectively combining an unlimited number of samples from multiple datasets for specific research objectives and explicitly saving them for collaboration, reuse, and regulatory filings
