GT’s Listome

Premium

These days, the proliferation of new words springing from the world of “omics” is almost as high-throughput as genome-scale sequencing. Genome Technology’s staff spent some time compiling a list — er, excuse us, that’s a “listome” — of the ’omes out there. We would love to say it’s comprehensive, but by the time this is published, no doubt each of the ’omes here will have spawned more generations to contribute to the epidemic.

White-Tailed Deer Harbor SARS-CoV-2 Variants No Longer Infecting Humans, Study Finds

A new study in PNAS has found that white-tailed deer could act as a reservoir of SARS-CoV-2 variants no longer found among humans.

Study Points to Benefits of Local Consolidative Therapy, Targeted Treatments in Cancer Care

In JCO Precision Oncology, researchers report that local consolidative therapy combined with molecularly targeted treatments could improve survival for some lung cancer patients.

Genetic Variants That Lower LDL Cholesterol Linked to Reduced Heart Disease Risk

Rare variants in two genes that lower LDL cholesterol are also associated with a decreased risk of coronary heart disease, according to a new JAMA Cardiology study.

Study Links Evolution of Longevity, Social Organization in Mammals
