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

Scripps Research Translational Institute has teamed with Nvidia to create a center of excellence for AI in genomics and wearable sensors.

With all of its 600 nurses trained in genomics competency, the research hospital at NIH wants patient genetic pedigrees available directly in the EMR.

The new institute, co-located with the China National GeneBank, will focus on synthetic biology technologies and applications. 

With its inaugural informatics director set to begin next month, the year-old IU Precision Health Initiative should begin its research work this fall.

The new data center will establish a strong foundation for research into the genetic causes of common diseases and how to prevent them.

The Bridget Ogilvie Building will house sequencing facilities, and the Biodata Innovation Centre will host genomic startups.

The DNA foundries have been funded through an £18 million ($23.5 million) investment from the BBSRC and should all be fully operational by next year.

The laboratory will employ dedicated computational biologists and bioinformaticians to analyze genomic datasets for ALSF-funded researchers and other scientists.  

The new center will focus on supporting and mentoring junior faculty researchers as well as on building bioinformatics infrastructure for projects.
