The lab also offers the MDL Cystic Fibrosis Comprehensive Test, an expanded CFTR gene sequence analysis that screens for 191 variants, including the recommended 23 major mutations, in addition to nine mutations recommended by the US FDA to determine treatment efficacy of Kalydeco (ivacaftor).
Professor Robbie Waugh From the James Hutton Institute and the University of Dundee, together with colleagues at the Joint Genome Institute, the universities of Minnesota and Kansas State in the USA and the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) in Germany, contributed a large part of the genetic information which helped bring the majority of the wheat gene sequences into a linear order along each chromosome and reveal their organisation in the wheat genome.
These species had 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity more than 97% with strain NCCP-54T, which made it mandatory to provide further evidence to establish the novelty of strain NCCP-54T by DNA-DNA hybridization (Stackebrandt and Goebel, 1994) and to describe strain NCCP-54T as Lysinibacillus pakistanensis sp.
