The company published a letter on its website explaining that the genetic and other analyses involved in its services were too costly for customers to support.

Concordance numbers and early evidence of clinical impact from a 100-patient first phase were sufficient to expand to another 450 individuals.

With genomic and proteomic profiles for more than 100 colon cancer cases, researchers identified drug targets, treatment resistance insights, potential cancer drivers, and more.

The company beat Wall Street expectations on the top and bottom line, and adjusted its guidance for the year upward reflecting the strength of the quarter.

With machine learning and clinical natural language processing, the team has come up with more automated methods to do provisional diagnoses on children with genetic disease.

The company also said that effective Thursday, consumer genomics firm Helix would be deconsolidated with former Illumina executive Marc Stapley joining as Helix CEO.

Wired reports on how genetic genealogy's use in forensics has exploded in the year since an arrest in the Golden State Killer case was made.

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. 

Breakthrough UV-C Performance Enables Better Control for Lab Managers

This white paper makes the case for why UV LED technology deserves serious consideration by RNA sequencing labs for controlling ribonuclease in a laboratory setting. It describes Phoseon’s findings related to LED light engines for the inactivation of RNases in a laboratory setting.

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.
