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.

A rare autosomal variant and common X-linked variant study produced new associations between first-menstruation timing and rare autosomal variants.

In order to understand why patients may or may not agree to participate in PGx research, a study tracked 8,500 cancer participants in cooperative group studies.

The funding will also support a partnership developing agricultural educational and training opportunities for students in genomics and bioinformatics.

In PNAS this week: transcript patterns in drug-resistant cancer cells, function of high-altitude adaption gene, and more.

Monitoring gene expression changes could help sniff out athletes using performance-enhancing drugs, New Scientist says.

The University of Southern California lodges a cross-complaint in its legal dispute with the University of California, San Diego, over a large Alzheimer's disease project.

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
