The Boston-based synthetic biology firm said it will use the funds to grow its cell programing platform, which it will make available to startups.

The firm said CRISPR will enable targeted sequencing of long regions of interest that were previously only accessible with long-read whole-genome sequencing.

Starting in late 2020, public health insurance is expected to pay for NIPT if a trisomy is suspected and this constitutes an "unacceptable burden" for the pregnant woman.

Infants born vaginally had gut microbiomes enriched with commensal bacteria, while those born by caesarian section harbored hospital-associated bacteria.

The industry organization issued a letter urging the agency to reconsider recent decisions to demand several laboratories stop offering pharmacogenetic testing.

The blood test screens individual blood donations for four common species of the parasite Babesia, which can cause anemia and other potentially fatal conditions. 

NPR says the explosion and fire earlier this week at a Russian lab that stores dangerous pathogens revives the question of whether such samples should be kept.

According to Wired, Nebula Genomics is providing a way for people to get their genomes sequenced anonymously.

A 26-year-old woman tells Cosmopolitan about learning her APOE status at a young age.

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.
