How Formaspace Helped Sequence the Human Genome

The Human Genome

DNA sequencing

Steven Riedmuller, who was Senior Director of Field Applications at TIGR at the time

When Craig Venter’s team was sequencing the first human genome, TIGR relied on FORMASPACE to give them a competitive edge over publicly-funded contesting labs.

Time for required for Formaspace to fabricate and deliver? A mere 8 weeks from start to finish.

— Steven Riedmuller

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since the Human Genome was decoded in the early 2000s, we take a lot of things for granted that would have been considered science fiction just a few generations earlier. Consider the following:

We now consider it normal to collect DNA samples as evidence at a crime scene to implicate (or exonerate) suspects. Taking this further, residents of upscale New York City co-ops have even gone as far as testing doggie poo to nab the dog owners who don’t clean up after their pets.
We can take a swab sample (often in the comfort of our own home) to determine which viruses we have been exposed to during our lifetime, identify diseases which our individual genes might make us more likely to develop, or get insight into our ancestral genetic racial heritage. We can even get our own dogs tested to determine their breed backgrounds.
Doctors can now provide personalized medicine (pharmacogenomics) at leading healthcare institutions, like MD Anderson Cancer Center, which tests patients for their unique genetic makeup in order to provide ‘precision medicine’ cancer treatments. Eventually, the “Moon Shot”, or the cure-all for cancer, could also be readily available.
Public health officials and investigators can identify strain variations of disease pathogens, ranging from MRSA and HIV to Anthrax, making it possible in many cases to determine the source of a disease outbreak.
How did laboratory scientists break the code of the Human Genome?
Let’s roll the clock back to the immediate post-World War II period. Cambridge University graduate Frederick Sanger began his career studying insulin protein at the National Institute for Medical Research in London. This work led the Nobel Committee to award Sanger a Nobel Prize for successfully sequencing insulin and determining conclusively that amino acid proteins had a defined, regular sequence.

While Sanger had been studying insulin in London, British scientist Francis Crick and American researcher James D. Watson proposed a novel solution to explain the structure of DNA — two strands of DNA coiled together to form a double helix.

Importantly, they theorized that genetic information flowed in one direction — from DNA to RNA, then from RNA to proteins. (Previously many scientists, including Sanger, thought proteins — not DNA — were the source of genetic information.)

An experiment comparing regular hemoglobin with hemoglobin affected by sickle-cell anemia confirmed the new DNA replication hypothesis.

Sanger eventually joined Crick and Watson at Cambridge, where he studied how DNA makes proteins using messenger RNA (mRNA) and transfer RNA (tRNA) at the new Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB).

Meanwhile other researchers around the world were making progress. Robert Holley’s team at Cornell was the first the sequence alanine transfer RNA (tRNA) from yeast; it contained 77 nucleotides.

The first DNA sequencing breakthrough came from researchers Wu and Kaiser, who used DNA polymerase to sequence a small fragment of lambda bacteriophage DNA; making it the first time DNA had been sequenced.

The number of identified DNA sequences began to grow and grow.

By 1977, Sanger identified the first complete genome of an organism, the phi X 174 bacteriophage, containing 5,386 nucleotides.

Sanger and Coulson published their gene sequencing technique in 1977 — today known as “Sanger’s Method” — which uses dideoxynucleotides to control the DNA polymerase reactions.

Meanwhile, Allan Maxam and Walter Gilbert had developed their own technique that could sequence double-stranded DNA, making it a superior method despite the use of highly toxic chemicals.

However, in the end, Sanger’s Method became the dominant first-generation sequencing technique when Bruno Gronenborn and Joachim Messing demonstrated they could insert a double-stranded DNA into a single-stranded M13 bacteriophage. This bacteriophage would then ‘clone’ the DNA sequence into single strands of DNA – making it was suitable for analysis using the Sanger’s Method.

For their scientific research, Maxam, Gilbert and Sanger were awarded the 1980 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, making Sanger a rare two-time winner. In 1983 Frederick Sanger retired; he passed away in 2013.

(Bacteriophage viruses are in the news lately. They are the ‘knives’ used to cut DNA in the CRISPR/Cas9 technique we have written about previously.)

The Rise of Automation Techniques for Gene Sequencing
As the scope of DNA sequencing projects grew, it became imperative to develop computer software and laboratory automation systems to process and interpret the vast amount of data. By the late 1970s, researchers like Roger Staden at the LMB were programming minicomputers to manipulate scientific data.

In the late 1980s, the Caltech scientists introduced the AB370, the first automated DNA sequencer. It used fluorescent dyes to identify DNA bases, rather than radioactive tagging used in the classic Sanger’s Method. Soon the new DNA sequencers were fast enough to sequence 50,000 bases in a few hours – previously the same task took a full man-year to complete.

The Start of the Human Genome Project

With the successful completion of a three year project to sequence human mitochondrial DNA, it was time to tackle the biggest objective of all: sequencing the entire human DNA.

The Human Genome Project was launched in 1990 with a budget of $3 billion, with participants from science labs around the world.

But it turns out they were not the only ones wanting a crack at the problem. In 1992, American researcher J. Craig Venter left the National Institutes of Health to establish his own research unit called The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR).

In 1998, Venter established another new venture called Celera Genomics, whose goal was to sequence the human genome faster than the public-funded Human Genome Project — using a method called whole genome “shotgun” sequencing.

We spoke with Steven Riedmuller, who was Senior Director of Field Applications at TIGR at the time.

During Steven Riedmuller’s tenure as the Laboratory Automation Manager at TIGR, the race between Venter’s team and The Human Genome Project was coming down to the wire. Which team would decode the Human Genome first?

In response to the challenge, Venter’s organization went big: they decided they needed to double their genetic sequencing capacity as soon as physically possible.

But despite the herculean effort, the TIGR facility had a physical capacity problem — one that many laboratory managers face every day. How could they fit double the amount of lab equipment (in this case DNA sequencers) when there simply wasn’t enough space in the existing lab?

The easy answer, facility expansion, was out of the question. There wasn’t time to lease another building, much less equip it. And the cost for that was going to be a budget buster.

That’s when TIGR’s Laboratory Automation Manager, Steven Riedmuller, called Formaspace to see how we could help them out with an innovative solution.

What we discovered is that weight and cost were two important issues. The sequencers at TIGR were heavy (weighing in at 400 pounds each) and valuable — each sequencer unit cost around $140,000 each!

Here at Formaspace, we knew even our standard workbenches were strong enough to ensure that these heavy, expensive sequencers were secure and stable. The trick was to find a way to increase the capacity of the TIGR laboratory without increasing their square footage footprint.

The solution? We fabricated heavy-duty modular workbenches that nested together in a double stack – allowing TIGR to use twice the number of sequencers in their existing laboratory footprint.

The result: TIGR doubled their DNA sequencing productivity rate — and, very importantly — they avoided having to fork over $5 million dollars on a time consuming real-estate expansion.

Time for required for Formaspace to fabricate and deliver? A mere 8 weeks from start to finish.

'Friendship Bench' program proves effective at alleviating mental illness symptoms

Friendship Bench and “Grandmothers”

GCC logo

In Zimbabwe study, Friendship Bench therapy reduces prevalence of depression to under 14%, compared to 50% in control group

We need innovations like the Friendship Bench to flip the gap and go from 10 percent of people receiving treatment, to 90 percent of people receiving treatment.

— Dr. Peter A. Singer, CEO, Grand Challenges Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, December 27, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Their offices are simple wooden seats, called Friendship Benches, located in the grounds of health clinics around Harare and other major cities in Zimbabwe.

The practitioners are lay health workers known as community "Grandmothers," trained to listen to and support patients living with anxiety, depression and other common mental disorders.

But the impact, measured in a ground-breaking study, shows that this innovative approach holds the potential to significantly improve the lives of millions of people with moderate and severe mental health problems in countries where access to treatment is limited or nonexistent.

Six months after undergoing six weekly "problem solving therapy" sessions on the Friendship Benches, participants showed significant differences in severity of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts based on locally-validated questionnaires: the Shona Symptom Questionnaire (SSQ), the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ) and the Generalised Anxiety Disorder scale (GAD).

Funded by the Government of Canada through Grand Challenges Canada, the randomised controlled trial was conducted by the University of Zimbabwe, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and King's College London.

The study is published Dec. 27 in JAMA, the world's most widely-circulated medical journal.

Striking results

* Patients with depression or anxiety who received problem-solving therapy through the Friendship Bench were more than three times less likely to have symptoms of depression after six months, compared to patients who received standard care, (14% vs. 50%).

* They were also four times less likely to have anxiety symptoms (12% vs 48%) and less likely to have suicidal thoughts than the control group (2% vs. 12%) of patients who received standard care still had suicidal thoughts after follow-up.

The Friendship Bench intervention was also shown to be well suited to improve health outcomes among highly vulnerable individuals. 86 percent of the study's participants were women, over 40 percent were HIV positive, and 70 percent had experienced domestic violence or physical illness.

Lead author of the study Dr. Dixon Chibanda, a consultant psychiatrist in Harare, co-founded the Friendship Bench network in response to the appalling shortage of evidence-based treatment for people with mental disorders in Zimbabwe, a problem common throughout Africa.

While about 25 percent of the country's primary care patients suffer from depression, anxiety and other common mental disorders, Zimbabwe (population 15 million) has only 10 psychiatrists and 15 clinical psychologists.

"Common mental disorders impose a huge burden on all countries of sub-Saharan Africa," says Dr. Chibanda. "Developed over 20 years of community research, the Friendship Bench empowers people to achieve a greater sense of coping and control over their lives by teaching them a structured way to identify problems and find workable solutions."

With CDN $1 million in funding from Grand Challenges Canada earlier this year, the Friendship Bench has since been scaled to 72 clinics in the cities of Harare, Gweru and Chitungwiza (total population 1.8 million). Through collaborating with a Médecins Sans Frontières psychiatric program in Zimbabwe, the Friendship Bench is working to create the largest comprehensive mental health program in sub-Saharan Africa.

To date, over 27,500 people have accessed treatment.

"In developing countries, nearly 90 percent of people with mental disorders are unable to access any treatment," says Dr. Peter A. Singer, Chief Executive Officer of Grand Challenges Canada. "We need innovations like the Friendship Bench to flip the gap and go from 10 percent of people receiving treatment, to 90 percent of people receiving treatment."

"In many parts of Africa, if you are poor and mentally ill, your chances of getting adequate treatment are close to zero," says Dr. Karlee Silver, Vice President Programs at Grand Challenges Canada.

"In Zimbabwe, that's changing thanks to the Friendship Bench, the first project with the potential to make mental health care accessible to an entire African nation."

In 2017, the team will focus on expanding the model to reach other vulnerable populations, including youth and refugees. In partnership with the Swedish NGO SolidarMed, the team intends to expand implementation of this model in Masvingo province and subsequently in the refugee centres of the eastern highlands on the border with Mozambique.

"The Friendship Bench team, working with the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health, has been able to substantially scale up services for some of the most deprived people in the community," says Dr. Shekhar Saxena, Director of Mental Health and Substance Abuse at the World Health Organization.

"By supporting the uptake of mental health innovations like the Friendship Bench, Canada is helping to turn the tide in the global mental health challenge."

The study was conducted from September 2014 to June 2015, and involved:

* Identifying participants at 24 primary care clinics in Harare, divided into an intervention group (287 participants) and a control group (286). Total participants: 573

* Participants were all at least 18 years old (median age 33)

* All had been assessed at 9 or higher on a 14-level "Shona Symptoms Questionnaire" (SSQ-14), an indigenous measure of common mental disorders in Zimbabwe's Shona language (http://bit.ly/2h2SQch). Changes in depression were measured using the PHQ-9 scale

* Excluded were patients with suicidal intent (those who were clinically depressed with suicidal thoughts and a plan for suicide), end-stage AIDS, were currently in psychiatric care, were pregnant or up to 3 months post-partum, presented with current psychosis, intoxication, and/or dementia (such patients were referred to a higher level clinic in Harare)

* The control group received standard care (nurse assessment, brief support counselling, medication, referral to see a clinical psychologist and/or a psychiatrist, and Fluoxetine if warranted) plus education on common mental disorders

* Intervention group participants met on a wooden bench on the grounds of municipal clinics with trained, supervised lay health workers, popularly known as "grandmothers," (median age 53) who provided problem solving therapy with three components — "opening up the mind, uplifting the individual, and further strengthening."

The 45-minute sessions took place weekly for six weeks, with an optional 6-session group support program available.

The "grandmothers" used mobile phones and tablets to link to specialist support.

"The past two years have been extremely exciting in introducing new technology for spherical filmmaking underwater."

— 360RIZE CEO Michael Kintner

OLEAN, NY, UNITED STATES, December 23, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — 360RIZE, formerly 360Heros, Inc., is commemorating its 360Abyss™ underwater 360 video camera system having been on the market for two years.

Introduced in 2014, the 360Abyss™ v4 is the fourth iteration of the 360Abyss™ system. Key v4 system features include simultaneous camera control underwater via the company's Bullet360 technology, optical domes for clarity and correcting image distortion, and a crush depth rating to 1,000 meters.

"The past two years have been extremely exciting in introducing new technology for spherical filmmaking underwater," stated 360RIZE CEO Michael Kintner. "Dating back to our first underwater virtual reality camera system in 2012, we've been helping solve the challenges presented by 360-degree capture underwater."

"The 360Abyss™ is the top of the line 360VR system for underwater filming, nothing else comes close.
Exquisite machining, high resolution, and excellent optics. The magnetic on-off-record function makes the system a pleasure to work with." – NOGI Award-winning diver and cinematographer Bill Macdonald

"I have been shooting underwater for two decades and VR for over a year now, and my go to choice for underwater capture from the start has been 360RIZE’s 360Abyss™. Michael Kintner has designed a VR housing with the content creator in mind, arming the cinematographer with confidence, reliability, and trust that when you enter the water in VR, you will never miss a shot." – Adam Ravetch, Wildlife filmmaker and cinematographer

360RIZE has been producing underwater 360 video camera systems since 2012 with its original products utilizing early GoPro™ cameras as capture devices. 360RIZE holds several patents for spherical camera arrays covering its product lines of above water and underwater 360 video solutions.

The company's underwater solutions first garnered mainstream attention when a great white shark bit an early prototype camera rig while it was being operated by Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Andy Brandy Casagrande IV. The popular footage aired on CNBC's "Power Lunch" and was featured by the Daily Mail.
360RIZE v1 underwater spherical video solutions were used by TIME Magazine in 2013 to film "Deep Dive," an exploration of Fabian Cousteau's project Mission31.

– Houses 6 GoPro™ cameras in individual compartments for capturing fully spherical 360 video/ 360 photos
– Compatible with GoPro™ Hero3+, Hero4 Black, Hero4 Silver cameras
– Underwater magnetic trigger for turning cameras on/off underwater and firing camera shutters simultaneously
