The process challenges claims made in certain UC Berkeley patents on the use of CRISPR-Cas9 to edit eukaryotic genomes.

The new initiative, called MEGA+, will extend the process of genomic data sharing to all medical data, including electronic health records and imaging files.

Nuclear and mitochondrial genome sequences from 120,000-year-old Neanderthal remains from Germany and Belgium revealed genetic ties to more recent Neanderthal populations.

A collaboration with ATAC-seq experts at the Broad Institute suggests the Bio-Rad assay can analyze tens of thousands of cells per experiment.

The company is aiming to create a suite of products that can help researchers and manufacturers engineer various genomes at scale for multiple purposes.

The agreement follows a number of other distribution deals Bioké has signed in recent months including ones with Omni Life Science, Syntec, and Namocell.

The US Patent and Trademark Office is opening another interference proceeding in the CRISPR patent fight.

There's increasing genetic evidence that a number of ancient hominins may have contributed to the human gene pool, according to Discover's The Crux blog.

Join MNG Laboratories' Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Peter L. Nagy, and the Clinical Reporting Team as they present multiple case studies illustrating the value of using complementary testing and data analysis methods to increase the clinical sensitivity of MNG’s genetic testing portfolio. The team will highlight cases solved through the application of high resolution CNV assessment, mitochondrial DNA analysis, transcriptome/RNA sequencing, and repeat expansion screening from genome sequencing datasets. After the presentation, there will be a 15 minute Q&A with our speakers.

Join us for a webinar presented by our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Peter L. Nagy, to discuss the benefits of performing and analyzing genome and RNA sequencing together. The increased number of single nucleotide and copy number variants associated with genome sequencing are best interpreted with the help of joint parental testing and the assessment of the functional significance of intronic and regulatory changes with a functional test like the transcriptome.
