Sequences from golden jackals, wolves, and other canines suggest the Africa's golden jackal is not part of the same species as golden jackals in Eurasia.

Researchers saw high recurrence risk in oropharyngeal carcinoma patients with human papillomavirus type 16 DNA in their spit samples both before and after treatment.

A Hermes Pardini Institute researcher described how a gene panel test for breast cancer uncovered variants of unknown significance and how new data changed their significance.

Pharmacogenomic analysis has become a critical part of Pfizer's drug development efforts, that Jean-Claude Marshall calls an "insurance policy" well worth the investment.

In Science this week: caution urged in use of gene drives, and more.

NIH's Sally Rockey examines the tapped and untapped potential of the NIH peer reviewer pool.

PLOS Biology has asked researchers how they envision the future of genetics and genomics.

Representative Lamar Smith brings back a provision to require the National Science Foundation to certify that each study it funds is "in the national interest."

Lucigen has developed an NGS library technology that generates 20 kb mate pair reads that jump across repetitive elements found in microbial genomes (www.lucigen.com/matepair), which dramatically improves the success of assembly de novo by resolving repeat elements and ordering contigs. Six microbial genomes have been assembled de novo and completely closed and finished using Lucigen’s NxSeq® 20 kb mate pair library kit, a companion fragment library, and SPAdes assembly software.

Developments in scientific research are outpacing the IT infrastructure lifecycle. Avere Systems worked with Cambridge HealthTech Institute to survey 100 professionals responsible for storage in research environments. This report looks at the results of this unique survey and shares insights into the challenges expressed by respondents, like:

  • What respondents felt were their biggest issues
  • What is needed
  • Benchmarks for comparison
