The test, run on the BD Max system, allows hospitals to diagnose SARS-CoV-2 on site and receive results in less than three hours.

GenomeWeb asked a number of prominent researchers in the field via email about their top picks for notable developments or achievements in genomics during the 2010s.

Under the guidance, only the laboratory that developed the test can perform it if the lab is CLIA-certified to perform high-complexity tests.

The test, developed by the firms in six weeks, is part of a viral respiratory panel and runs on Bosch's point-of-care Vivalytic system.

The firm believes that its molecular assay for the laboratory will help ease some of the supply chain issues hampering test rollout during the pandemic.

Some of the market's most influential voices, including Kári Stefánsson and Linda Avey, believe that consumer genomics is not on the way out but rather experiencing a period of transition.

A German shepherd called Nala has had her genome sequenced.

A coronavirus serology test garners Emergency Use Authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration, but the Los Angeles Times asks: how will tests like that be used?

Certain gene variants in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle may keep brains young, according to New Scientist.

In Science this week: increased CD8 T cell density and increased IFN-gamma response may indicate metastatic prostate cancer patients who will respond to immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

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.
