Clinical Sequencing

In an amended draft policy on comprehensive genomic profiling, Palmetto said that approved registries will have to commit to sharing data, among other requirements. 

The new company believes it can be the dominant clearinghouse for genome analysis apps or other tools, with free and unlimited storage of users' genomic data.

During an FDA-sponsored workshop last week, participants discussed ideas for a regulatory framework that can evolve with rapidly advancing technology.

Researchers have shown that metagenomic sequencing on the MinIon can identify the pathogen and antimicrobial resistance profile of UTIs in several hours. 

A team from Radboud University in the Netherlands performed a new detailed and transparent cost analysis for sequencing based on both static costs, and factors that may differ from institution to institution.
