CNN reports that people's genes tend to have a greater influence on their risk of developing disease than their environment, but it varies by phenotype.

In PNAS this week: gypsy moth genome sequenced, phylogenomic analysis of Polyneopterans, and more.

An international team found 566 variants in 406 loci, 150 of which evidenced pleiotropic association for alcohol and tobacco use.

MSK researchers showed that high TMB may be associated with improved survival across tumor types, but the cut-offs for high and low status will vary based on histology.

This embargo-free strategy represents "an entirely new way of doing research" into rare pediatric cancers, where time is of the essence.

The subtypes — which were distinguished from one another using proteomic data — were associated with proliferation, immune response, metabolism, and invasion.

Researchers uncovered nearly a hundred loci to general risk tolerance and hundreds more to particular risky behaviors.

Researchers found that hypoxia was associated with elevated genomic instability in 10 tumor types and saw widespread hypoxia-associated dysregulation of miRNAs.

The acquisition is expected to enhance Health Network Laboratories’ inherited genetic disorders diagnostic services offerings.
