research consortium

Seventeen European countries have signed a declaration to have a million genomes sequenced and shareable by 2022.

CHOP's Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Data Resource Center will use PhenoTips software from Gene42 to integrate "deep phenotyping" with genomic data.

The system relies on the use of scannable safety code cards containing patient data, along with a web portal and automated analysis tools that deliver customized diagnostic reports.

The third set of papers out this week from The Cancer Genome Atlas touches on ways to cluster tumors, oncogenic processes that contribute to oncogenesis, and more.

Researchers associated with the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network will publish more than 25 papers this week to discuss findings from the initiative.

The project, dubbed FinnGen, was announced this week and is slated to run through mid-2023.

The new European initiative promises to deliver multiple new tests and methods for improving the treatment of breast cancer and rectal cancer.

Backed by €19 million in EU funding, the initiative, called BigData@Heart, will create a research platform that could change the way cardiovascular diseases are diagnosed and treated.

The FDA and an academic research consortium have released a framework for communicating high-throughput sequencing computations and data analysis.

The consortium is collecting data from different omics streams for a cohort of individuals with autism spectrum disorders with the long-term goal of improving treatment.
