Enhance Your Ribo-Seq Results!

Introducing our newest riboPOOLs: the Human tRNA and Mouse tRNA riboPOOLs. Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) can also constitute a significant fraction of Ribo-Seq samples, and are often the most abundant RNAs after ribodepletion. Combine our Ribo-Seq riboPOOLs and tRNA riboPOOLs to deplete rRNAs from Ribo-Seq samples while simultaneously depleting tRNAs. The result? A significant boost in mRNA reads, unlocking richer insights from your samples!

New product addition: the riboPOOL RNA cleanUP module!

New product addition - the riboPOOL cleanUP module! We're excited to expand our riboPOOL kits and offer free RNA clean-up beads which each kit. RNA samples that have been subject to rRNA depletion must be purfied before sequencing library preparation to remove salts and buffer concentrates. The riboPOOL cleanUP module utilizes magnetic beads to efficiently purify your rRNA depeleted RNA sample prior to downstream applications.

siTOOLs Biotech sponsors Argonautes Conference 2022

MUNICH, GERMANY – siTOOLs Biotech GmbH, a young, research-driven biotech company based in Munich/Martinsried and rapidly growing in the field of functional genomics and Next-Generation RNA sequencing, today announced its support for the upcoming Argonautes Conference 2022 at University of Regensburg as lead sponsor.

The conference, organized by Prof. Gunter Meister from University of Regensburg, and Prof. Martin Simard of CHU de Québec-Université Laval Research Center, will be held from 24 to 27th August 2022.

The conference's scientific program will focus on Argonaute, the core protein of the RNAi mechanism: and how mutations in the Argonaute gene can lead to rare genetic disorders.  The program starts with sessions dedicated to the diverse roles of prokaryotic Argonaute proteins (pAgo), and the functions of Argonaute in plants. It will then move to new insights in the structure of Argonaute proteins, touch on the role of Argonaute in the silencing of transposable elements and show how Argonaute is involved in animal development. The conference will finally come to the 4 human Argonaute proteins and their role in disease.

Andrew Walsh, bioinformatician at siTOOLs Biotech is one of the confirmed speakers of the event.He will show how large-scale RNAi screening datasets can be used to study the molecular behavior of human Argonaute proteins. Other highlights include a keynote lecture by Dr. Leslie Gordon, who drove the development of a treatment for a rare disease Progeria, and a panel with affected families sharing their experiences.

“We are excited to sponsor the Argonautes Conference,” said Michael Hannus, Founder and Managing Director of siTOOLs Biotech. “As an RNA company, our mission has always been to support and facilitate RNA research to help accelerate scientific breakthroughs. We are sponsoring this conference to promote the research and drive awareness of Argonaute related diseases. Hopefully the conference can contribute to finding solutions for the life of children and families impacted by AGO2 (Lessel-Kreienkamp/Leskres) syndrome.”

Are you doing RNAi research, arrayed RNAi screens, or CRISP validations?

Come by and ask us any questions regarding your experimental setup, methods or bioinformatics analysis.
Connect with us through this link to receive updates and meeting opportunities for siTOOLs Biotech at the conference. We will be setting up a booth at this event where you can meet our team of scientists!

Interview with Dr. Martinez on halophilic archaea

New blog post!πŸ‘€ We interviewed Dr. Martinez on her latest publication on iron homeostasis in halophilic archaea, the importance of mentoring and her interests outside of science. In her latest research she used the Pan-Archaea riboPOOL which depleted > 90% of rRNA across different species of halophilic Archaea.
