The guidelines place a stronger emphasis on pancreatic cancer risk genes, and broaden testing recommendations for those with Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry.

Illumina and PacBio wrote that the agency "has failed to establish that Illumina's short-read systems and PacBio's native long-read systems compete."

The project has sequenced more than 1,700 individuals from across Asia to high coverage in order to bolster the representation of Asians in genomic research.

Veracyte has also acquired Nanostring's Prosigna breast cancer and LymphMark lymphoma assays and plans to develop diagnostic tests using the nCounter platform. 

ArcherDx will develop in vitro diagnostic tests, including companion diagnostics, to run on Illumina's NextSeq 550Dx next-generation sequencing system.

The companies had agreed in early 2018 to collaborate on the development of technologies to support precision oncology initiatives, but Roche said "priorities" have changed.

LGC provides customers across multiple markets with reference materials, proficiency testing, oligonucleotides, genomics reagents, and instrumentation.

GenomeWeb reports that Veritas Genetics is suspending its US operations.

A Brazilian-led team of researchers reports it has generated a sugarcane genome assembly that encompasses more than 99 percent of its genome.

Certain plasma proteins could be used to gauge a person's age and whether they are aging well, according to HealthDay News.

In Science this week: approach to measure microRNA targeting efficiency, strategy to conduct high-throughput chemical screens at single-cell resolution, 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.

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.
