The strategy promises to offer patients the best possible predictive, preventative, and personalized care underpinned by genome sequencing.

A portion of patients with life-threatening COVID-19 pneumonia had inborn errors of TLR3- and IRF7-dependent type I IFN immunity.

Sequencing of ancient samples showed that Denisovan Y chromosomes split around 700,000 years ago from a lineage shared by Neanderthals and modern humans.
