Researchers of LU and BMC have identified the 3D structure and self-collection principles of bacterial myconosis

 

 

For the first time in the world, Latvian researchers have detected the components of a bacterial cell – a microdivision, also called microcompartmentes, a 3D structural structure. With the support of the “Mikrotīkls” fund of the University of Latvia (LU), the researchers of the LU and Latvian Biomedical Research and Studies Centre (BMC) have identified the principles by which these microparts are organised and visualised their 3D structure. The discovery has been published in the high-level scientific journal Nature Communications.

Highest evaluation of quality assurance proficiency testing for DNA isolation from tissue samples

 

 

Genome centre has performed quality evaluation of method that is used for DNA isolation from tumour tissue. This method has received highest possible evaluation in quality assessment scheme (Biospecimen Proficiency Testing) 2019/2020 year cycle, the protocol is used for processing of research specific samples for Genome Database of Latvian population. This testifies the potential for further development of tumour tissue processing for research at national biobank.
