Genos customers have until June 22 to dowload their exome and variant data from the Genos portal before it will no longer be accessible.

ApoE and COVID-19

A study suggests people with the ApoE e4 genotype may be more likely to have severe COVID-19 than those with other genotypes, the Guardian says.

New analyses indicate female researchers are publishing less during the coronavirus pandemic than male researchers, according to Nature News.

Direct-to-consumer genetic testing companies are searching for a genetic reason for why some people, but not others, become gravely ill with COVID-19, the Detroit Free Press reports.

In PNAS this week: forward genetics-base analysis of retinal development, interactions of T cell receptors with neoantigens in colorectal cancer, and more.

The firm is one of several groups taking a machine learning approach, which it said will enable lower-cost, faster, and more complete proteomic analyses.

A genome-wide meta-analysis involving more than 435,000 individuals also linked problematic alcohol use with other substance abuse and psychiatric disorders.

The company plans to use the proceeds for general product R&D, for reimbursement studies in the US, and for preparation for potential COVID-19 testing.

The company is working with German informatics firm MSAID to incorporate deep learning into mass spec analysis and with Biognosys on tools for quantitative work.

The company's adaptive low-resource testing technology requires no instrumentation and limited equipment, making it adaptable to settings without clinical lab infrastructure.
