With exome sequences from more than 600 metastatic breast tumors, researchers identified genomic alterations related to tumor progression, treatment response, and patient outcomes.

With exome sequences from tens of thousands of T2D cases or controls from five ancestral groups, researchers identified genes that are frequently impacted by rare T2D-linked variants.

An international commission is to develop a report on how researchers, clinicians, and regulators should evaluate the clinical applications of human germline genome editing.

In Genome Research this week: repetitive element deletion linked to altered methylation and more in form of muscular dystrophy; human contamination in draft bacterial and archaeal genomes; and more.

The commission will develop a framework for scientists, clinicians, and regulatory authorities on the appropriate use of human germline genome editing. 

The group will define and quantify Stroma Liquid Biopsy biomarkers in Leiden University-collected sera to correlate them with Leiden's tumor-stroma ratio scoring methods.

MammaPrint classifies patients as either high risk or low risk of recurrence over a 10-year period while BluePrint classifies patients by breast cancer subtype.
