Called CanPathPro, the research consortium aims to combine omics data and systems biology tools into a single commercial platform for testing cancer hypotheses.

Researchers plan to develop a device that supports nucleic acid sequencing and protein sequencing using plasmonic nanostructures.

Alacris' ModCell approach matches patients with appropriate therapies. 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Alacris Theranostics today said that is has gained Illumina CSPro certification for next-generation sequencing.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – German firm Alacris Theranostics today announced a deal with GlaxoSmithKline for the application of Alacris' Modcell System for drug stratification.

ModCell uses a patient's normal genomic data as well as the genomic and transcriptomic profiles of the patient's tumor to generate object-oriented models that can be used to personalize cancer treatments.

Alacris Theranostics is using whole-genome sequence analysis to develop individualized cancer therapies while EyeSense is developing ophthalmic diagnostic systems for glucose monitoring of diabetes patients.

The US Food and Drug Administration has new guidelines that enable some gene and cell therapies to undergo expedited review, according to the New York Times.

Using gene drives to control invasive species might be too risky, an initial advocate of the approach says.

Researchers have grown tumors in 3D cell cultures to better understand cancer, the Economist reports.
