Researchers found 253 candidate disease genes, based on 10,927 exomes from patients with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, or intellectual disability.

Using data for almost 10,900 Latino individuals with diverse ancestry, investigators identified distinct patterns for risky or protective APOE variants.

The firm is seeking damages and various injunctions, citing 11 different counts of fraud, breach of contract, tortious interference, and unfair competition.

Using data for nearly 45,000 epilepsy cases and controls, researchers identified loci contributing to focal epilepsy, genetic generalized epilepsy, or unclassified epilepsy.

The researchers reported that targeting HDAC4 in the patient-derived neurons appeared to correct the expression of genes that differed in the disease state.

Distinct alterations of the APP gene in Alzheimer's patients appear to depend on reverse transcriptase, suggesting HIV antiretroviral drugs as a potential new treatment.

Oxford BioDynamics will work with Italian research institute Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza to identify blood-based biomarkers of autism spectrum disorder.

Given that genetic susceptibility to schizophrenia is highly polygenic, the researchers found that the risk scores had some utility as prognostic biomarkers.

Screening of disease-linked cell types might bolster drug discovery efforts in schizophrenia, according to a proof-of-concept study.

The development is a positive for plaintiff Amy Williams, who has said she hopes her lawsuit will spur greater accountability and transparency among genetic testing labs.

The thousands of differentially acetylated peaks were enriched in regions harboring genes with disease-related pathology.

With CE-IVD marking, the melt curve analysis-based screening assay is available for sale in the EU and other areas that recognize the designation.
