A female mummy showing anatomical signs of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease was found to carry risky versions of seven heart disease-related SNPs.

Using thousands of genes from 90 animal species, investigators established models suggesting placental mammals diversified across the Cretaceous-to-Paleogene boundary.

The approach, called Orion, searches for regions of the human genome that are intolerant to change and could spawn pathogenic variants.

The release has been accompanied by acute interest from the genomics community, which views the resource as a "game changer" for anyone working in human genetics.

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT sees long-term potential in APIs for secure transfer of clinical and genomic data, but it's not quite there yet on the genomic side.

Streck has inked a distribution agreement with Innovative Medical Solutions for its portfolio of controls, cell stabilization, and molecular products.

With discovery and replication meta-analyses on data for more than 100,000 individuals, researchers identified variants that influence lean mass near five genes.

Researchers found that dogs have structural variants in two genes that have previously been linked to Williams-Beuren syndrome, a condition marked by hypersociability.
