Progenetics will distribute GeneStrat and Veristrat liquid biopsy tests in Israel, making Biodesix's tests available in the Middle East for the first time.

The company plans to use the proceeds to support research collaborations and to expand its commercial team.

The two studies were part of larger project aimed at building a complete map of mitochondrial function and associated proteins. 

The results support a survival benefit for patients treated with therapies guided by combined DNA and mRNA sequencing and protein expression analyses. 

The assay is designed to measure changes in blood levels of the peptide precursor procalcitonin to differentiate bacterial infections from viral ones.

Harold Varmus, a former NIH director, says that proposed reductions to the agency's budget are worrisome.

The Genome 10K project is to sequence about 10,000 vertebrate genomes, including ones of endangered species, Digital Trends reports.

The new Coalition to Save NIH Funding aims to educate lawmakers and the public on the significance of biomedical research.

In PLOS this week: analysis of viral sequences from human blood samples, gut microbiomes of heart failure patients, and more.
