The test can help diagnose spinal muscular atrophy and identify carriers without symptoms who may be at risk of passing the disease to their children.

The Phase 2 grant is for work the company is doing to analyze the proteomic responses of immune cells in patients with Alzheimer's and related conditions.

The companies are applying Personalis' technology to explore immune response to genetic therapeutics in Sarepta's pipeline.

The partners aim to develop unbiased omics-based methods for identifying cases of PTSD, which may increase in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Individuals with autism spectrum disorder who were younger or with a more severe condition were more likely to undergo genetic testing, a new analysis has found.

The study also found that certain genes may influence multiple complex traits, while others only affect one phenotype, making them worthwhile therapeutic targets.

At the Biology of Genomes virtual conference last week, several presentations focused on single-cell and spatial genomics data sets and how they could be complementary.

The charity also announced a partnership with Sage Bionetworks to establish an online repository for biomarker data generated by grant recipients.
