SLAMseq is an innovative sequencing method developed by the Ameres Lab (IMBA) in collaboration with Arndt von Haeseler’s group (CIBIV/MFPL) and other researchers at the Vienna Biocenters. This novel technology opens up new possibilities for medical screening and testing medication on live cells, as reported in the journal Nature Methods. The Viennese RNA community congratulates its members to their work:
