The company unveiled forthcoming products for high-throughput molecular testing, diagnostic lab informatics, and microbiology automation.

The one-year projects aim to create computational tools, algorithms, visualizations, and benchmark datasets for use with Human Cell Atlas data.

Conducting studies on Latina and African-American women produces population-specific insights on the genetics of the disease that aren't possible to glean in European-heavy GWAS.

In a training subset of the larger cohort, the company was able to develop classifiers that detected many cancers while minimizing false positives.

In a rapidly growing industry where 14 new genetic tests are launched daily, tracking utilization and payment is increasingly difficult, Concert Genetics' report says.

The FDA approved its use with tissue or plasma biopsies, giving clinicians a non-invasive option to conduct a test that provides results in a day.

Presentations largely reflected negatively on the utility of PD-L1 for stratifying response, but pivotal new data on tumor mutational burden as assessed by Foundation Medicine's genomic sequencing panel.

Plenary session Chairwoman Elaine Mardis said the presentations made it clear how great the need is for interdisciplinary science as data becomes ever more complex.

Named shieldin, the complex is involved in DNA damage repair processes and also plays a role in sensitizing BRCA1-depleted tumor cells to PARP inhibitors.

Freenome will leverage proteomics firm Biognosys' technology to add protein quantification to the development of Freenome's first commercially available screening test.

Named shieldin, the complex is involved in DNA damage repair processes and also plays a role in sensitizing BRCA1-depleted tumor cells to PARP inhibitors.

American scientists find themselves once again warning the Trump administration not to dismiss science, the New Yorker report.

A new study suggests CRISPR could be used to save coral reefs from dying off, Forbes reports.

Researchers have found that the i-motif shape of DNA previously observed in the lab also exists in human cells, and that it may serve a purpose.

In PNAS this week: a genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic analysis of the tea plant, Arabidopsis thaliana's adaptations to specific local environments, and more.

This case study shows how the University Medical Center (UMC)
Utrecht Genetics Department built a foundation to efficiently transition to
whole genome sequencing with combined CNV and SNV analysis on the
same data set.

The foundry model is poised to fundamentally transform the biotechnology sector. As it revolutionized the semiconductor industry in the mid 1980’s, the foundry model brings to molecular diagnostic companies a method to leverage the commonality of manufacturing techniques. By joining common manufacturing processes across several companies, assay manufacturing becomes a variable cost versus a fixed cost with substantial benefits to assay developers.

With increased biomarker and specialty lab data being incorporated into FDA submissions, drug developers are running into challenges as they prepare data that comply with new regulatory requirements. Precision for Medicine's experts present a case study for addressing these challenges and provide a solution.
