Researchers identified a handful of microbes associated with spontaneous preterm birth, and highlighted host immune protein levels with potential ties to the condition.

Under a proposed decision, to be finalized in August and become effective in late 2020, NIPT would only be covered for women with particular fetal trisomy risks.

Based on PCR technology acquired from Hain Diagnostics, the test and platform enable rapid detection of TB, as well as assessment of antibiotic resistance.

With single-cell genome sequencing, recombination assays, and other approaches in mouse cells, researchers identified factors affecting DNA crossover.

The study adds to growing evidence around the utility of cell-free DNA testing in lung cancer patients, while highlighting shortcomings of the approach.

Sequencing analysis of the Enterococcus faecium isolates found that they belonged to two clades, one of which harbored numerous resistance genes.

Molecular features in primary and recurrent glioblastomas indicated that key initiator mutations turned up years before diagnosis, often persisting in recurrent tumors.

The Navify software, which Roche launched today, provides annotation, interpretation, and clinical reporting of next-generation sequencing tests for cancer.

The company has initial financing of $35 million, and has licensed its foundational SHERLOCK and INSPECTR technologies from the Broad and Harvard, respectively.

Cambridge Cancer Genomics will contribute AI, liquid biopsy technology, and a TMB sequencing panel to broaden access to cancer immunotherapies in the UK.
