Single cell sequencing has a potential for disentangling causes of azoospermia

Azoospermia - or the absence of spermatozoa - is one of the causes of infertility, a problem faced by ~15% of couples. Azoospermic testis shows different characteristics and probably causes over different groups of patients. New single cell sequencing technologies allow the study of a tissue cell by cell, but analysis of such complex and big…

New forensic chemistry method to reveal the age of bloodstains and fingerprints

A fingerprint, a bloodstain or other biological material are some of the traces the police search for at a crime scene. With the help of the biological traces, a person or perpetrator can be tied to a crime scene. However, until now it has not been technically possible to determine when a fingerprint or other trace was made and thus determine…
