Illumina's TruSight HLA

Illumina has launched its TruSight HLA, a sequencing-based solution for accurate HLA typing across thousands of known and novel HLA alleles. The kit includes the TruSight HLA Sequencing Panel, a single assay for ultra-high resolution analysis of all the key genes within the major histocompatibility complex, reagents for preparing and sequencing DNA libraries, and optimized data analysis with software from Conexio Genomics.

ArcherDx's Software

ArcherDx has launched new versions of its Archer suite of software programs.

Archer Analysis 3.1 now supports automated sequence analysis, which improves turnaround times and enables researchers to call genomic alterations faster than previously possible. Archer Assay Designer 2.0 supports the creation of multiplex gene fusion assays by modifying existing, optimized catalog panels. And Archer Quiver, a database of gene fusion information, has been updated to include the latest information from COSMIC, PubMed, and other repositories.

DNAnexus' Whole Genome Assembly Offering

DNAnexus is now offering whole-genome assembly using long-read sequencing data from Pacific Biosciences' RS II system.

Sequences are assembled on DNAnexus' cloud-based platform using PacBio's Falcon assembler. The software, along with Drosophila, Arabidopsis, cancer cell line, and CHM13 datasets, are available on the platform under the 'featured projects' tab. DNAnexus is continuing to collaborate with PacBio to develop new features and improve current PacBio assembly technology in the cloud.

Cancer Survival Linked to Mutational Burden in Pan-Cancer Analysis

A pan-cancer paper appearing in JCO Precision Oncology suggests tumor mutation patterns provide clues for predicting cancer survival that are independent of other prognostic factors.

Australian Survey Points to Public Support for Genetic Risk Disclosure in Relatives of At-Risk Individuals

A survey in the European Journal of Human Genetics suggests most adult Australians are in favor of finding out if a relative tests positive for a medically actionable genetic variant.

Study Links Evolution of Stony Coral Skeleton to Bicarbonate Transporter Gene

A PNAS paper focuses on a skeleton-related bicarbonate transporter gene introduced to stony coral ancestors by tandem duplication.
