MSK researchers showed that high TMB may be associated with improved survival across tumor types, but the cut-offs for high and low status will vary based on histology.

The new, multinational iReceptor Plus Consortium will develop a platform for sharing of AIRR-seq data to advance immunotherapy and precision medicine.

Researchers also found that Neanderthals differed from humans more in the regulatory than protein-coding sequences of their genomes.

Researchers found that hypoxia was associated with elevated genomic instability in 10 tumor types and saw widespread hypoxia-associated dysregulation of miRNAs.

Kansas State University's Barbara Valent outlined genomics research underway to combat a fungal pathogen with the potential to seriously compromise wheat production.

An analysis of UK Biobank data finds hemochromatosis to be more prevalent than thought, according to the BBC.

An analysis finds that female biomedical researchers receive fewer prizes than male ones, and when they do win prizes, they are less prestigious.

In Nature this week: improved genomic analysis using a graph genome reference, tumor mutational burden could predict clinical response to immune checkpoint inhibitors, and more.

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.

Clinical laboratories are increasingly adopting molecular assays as an alternative to the tedious, time-consuming stool cultures that have long been the mainstay for testing patients who might have infectious diarrhea or conditions such as Salmonella or Campylobacter. With an estimated 1.7 billion cases of childhood diarrheal disease occurring annually around the world, this is a significant advance for gastroenteritis testing.
