Scientist Spotlight: Simmons Lab

The Simmons Laboratory

The Simmons Laboratory research mission is to create new knowledge in the areas of cancer biology and immunology that positively impacts the health disparities affecting vulnerable populations in the US and abroad.

Glenn Simmons Jr., PhD has a background in HIV and cancer biology and uses molecular biology to explore research questions at the intersection of the bench and the bedside. He also is committed to mentoring the next generation of scientists, especially those from groups underrepresented in biomedicine.

Recently, Dr. Simmons published a paper in Oncology Letters, Vol. 20, Issue 5. His team used a DeNovix CellDrop Automated Cell Counter to observe the GFP signal in 786‑O cells, confirming protein expression prior to cell collection.

    Scientist Spotlight: The Mehlenbacher Lab

    The Mehlenbacher Laboratory

    Dr. Shawn Mehlenbacher is part of the Hazelnut Breeding and Genetics program at Oregon State University.

    In a paper recently published in Tree Genetics & Genomes (2021) 17: 6, Hill et al. describe fine mapping of the locus that controls pollen-stigma incompatibility in hazelnut, including development of new simple sequence repeat and single nucleotide polymorphism markers. The S1 haplotype is from the resistant parent OSU 414.062 and the S3 haplotype is from the susceptible parent OSU 252.146.

    The team used the DeNovix QFX Fluorometer in conjunction with the DeNovix dsDNA High Sensitivity Assay to quantify their extracted dsDNA prior to sequencing the parent genomes. These sequencing data were then used to develop polymorphic DNA markers and predict genes in the aligned sequences.

      Brianna Stenger, PhD: The North Dakota State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (NDSU-VDL)

      The North Dakota State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (NDSU-VDL) is an AAVLD accredited full service laboratory that is a member of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN). The DS-11 and FX module are currently used in the Molecular Diagnostics section and will also be used in the new Sequencing section that is under construction.

      Brianna Stenger, PhD (pictured left), is the section head of Molecular Diagnostics section and the new Sequencing section, which is currently under construction. The Molecular Diagnostics section tests for around 50 different pathogens of small and large animals using traditional PCR and real-time PCR, and has been expanding to next-generation sequencing capabilities. A few pathogens include bovine respiratory viruses, Cryptosporidium parvumTritrichomonas foetusMycobacterium aviam subsp. paratuberculosis, multiple coronaviruses, Avian Influenza, West Nile Virus, ringworm, canine distemper, Toxoplasma gondii, canine parvovirus-2 and feline panleukopenia virus.

      The DS-11 was initially used to evaluate the concentration and purity of samples that were sent out for Sanger sequencing; but with the addition of the FX module to handle fluorescence, the instrument is now multifunctional and used for quality control in sequencing protocols to keep sequencing in-house. Sequencing projects currently include full 16S, targeted ITS, WGS of bacteria, AMR detection, and SARS-CoV-2 in animal sample matrices.
