QIAGEN Digital Insights Publication Roundup (Spring 2021)

Read about how researchers across the world are using QIAGEN Digital Insights solutions to accelerate their work in a variety of applications

Making sense of  complex ‘omics data, and developing the infrastructure to compile, store, search, analyze and visualize relevant information has significant challenges and may pose a burden to researchers without bioinformatics skills. Yet powerful insights derived from ‘omics data help innovate, integrate and translate scientific results into impactful discoveries. Many noteworthy papers cite QIAGEN Digital Insights solutions and demonstrate how our tools help drive research insights and discoveries. These papers use QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA)QIAGEN CLC Genomics and/or QIAGEN OmicSoft to help drive success. The QIAGEN Digital Insights portfolio encompasses a comprehensive, easy-to-use toolbox that ensures continuity in the NGS workflow. Here, we have curated a selection of just a few recent papers to offer a sense of the diversity of the research for which QIAGEN Digital Insights solutions makes a difference. 


QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA)

Multi-organ proteomic landscape of COVID-19 autopsies

First author: Xui Nie

Check out this fantastic work by coronavirus researchers at Westlake University who try to understand how SARS-CoV-2 causes cellular damage in organs other than the lungs. See how the team uses QIAGEN IPA to identify upregulated molecules and activated pathways in this proteomic study of COVID-19 autopsy samples. Read their full paper here.


EGR1 is a gatekeeper of inflammatory enhancers in human macrophages

First author: Marco Trizzino

Monocytes or macrophages? See how the team at The Wistar Institute used QIAGEN IPA to understand how EGR1 drives immune cell differentiation by studying upstream regulators of the genes associated with EGR1. Read the full article here.



Wastewater-based epidemiology as a useful tool to track SARS-CoV-2 and support public health policies at the municipal level in Brazil

First author: Tatiana Prado

We’ve heard wastewater can be used for COVID-19 surveillance.  Check out this QIAGEN CLC research paper on wastewater-based epidemiology as a useful tool to track SARS-CoV-2 in Brazil. Read the full article here.


KLF10 deficiency in CD4+ T cells triggers obesity, insulin resistance and fatty liver

First author: Akm Khyrul Wara

Is immune dysregulation and obesity/insulin resistance connected? Researchers at Harvard Medical use QIAGEN IPA and QIAGEN CLC Genomics to study the role of CD4+ T cells in insulin resistance and obesity to reveal how KLF10, a transcription factor and a critical regulator of CD4+ T regulatory cells, maybe be responsible.

Single-cell analysis reveals distinct immune landscapes in transplant and primary sarcomas that determine response or resistance to immunotherapy

First author: Amy J. Wisdom

Does immunotherapy work differently in primary vs. transplanted tumors? See how cancer researchers at Duke University use QIAGEN OmicSoft Suite for single-cell analysis of immune cells found in transplant vs. primary tumors and how these cells play a role in the effectiveness of immunotherapy.
