Clinical Sequencing

A CSER working group discussed strategies for distinguishing between somatic and germline variants and for how best to convey actionable germline information to cancer patients. 

Going forward, Complete Genomics will focus on clinical research and support BGI's noninvasive prenatal testing business as well as the launch of its benchtop sequencer in China.

Cigna worked with InformedDNA to come up with scenarios under which it would cover whole-exome sequencing, although it still considers whole-genome analysis investigational.

In the first year, the clinic will see around 300 patients and sequence around 3,000 referred from other clinics to diagnose rare, undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed diseases.

The High Performance Computing Solution for Genomics is a pre-configured computer hardware platform specifically designed for clinical genomic analysis.

The comment period on the Department of Health and Human Services' proposal to alter the Common Rule has been extended.

In Nucleic Acids Research this week: personal genome approach to RNA-seq read alignment, hematopoietic Systems Biology Repository, and more.

A man is using DNA evidence to argue that he is the rightful heir to the baronetcy of Stichill, the Guardian reports.

As part of an effort to get a diverse group of people to donate their DNA for research, some blood donors in the San Diego area will get their genomes sequenced, according to KPBS.
