Led by a group of 10 biopharmaceutical firms, the project will use Olink's proteomic technology to look at participants' plasma levels of roughly 1,500 proteins.

The Regeneron Genetics Center will provide whole-exome sequencing for 150,000 patients who will be able to opt-in to receive actionable results.

Results of three studies, which had overlapping findings, were presented at the American Society of Human Genetics 2020 virtual meeting on Wednesday.

More than 198,000 LOF variants turned up in exome sequences from 49,960 UK Biobank participants, including variants with potential ties to human traits.

A Regeneron-led team identified four variants that affect LDL cholesterol levels and are much more prevalent among Southwestern American Indians.

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals is among the new investors, as the bioinformatics company continues to scale up its multiomics platform to meet growing demand.

Regeneron will sequence and annotate 450,000 exomes and pair the data with UCHealth patient records to advance drug discovery and precision medicine.

Regeneron is covering the cost of the sequencing and genotyping, and both partners will have access to the data for research purposes.

A team compared expression in duodenum samples from active celiac cases, cases in remission, and unaffected controls, identifying active disease-related expression shifts.

The project dovetails with a separate effort to sequence the whole exomes of the samples, the first 50,000 of which became available to researchers this month.
