ALS

The study also found that certain genes may influence multiple complex traits, while others only affect one phenotype, making them worthwhile therapeutic targets.

The partners will use Medidata's machine learning-based biomarker discovery platform to investigate the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis disease process.

In Nature this week: resources for single-cell analysis, little overlap in the microRNAs used by Salmonella and Shigella to infect host cells, and more.

CNN reports that an experimental treatment is showing promise for treating the genetic form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

The ALS Association is committing $3.5 million, including a $1 million commitment from its Greater New York chapter, while the Tow Foundation is contributing $2.5 million.

New Scientist reports that researchers have tested an ALS gene therapy in a mouse model of disease.

The assay was shown to have a simpler workflow and was able to detect mosaicism, with only a slight decrease in sensitivity compared to a lab-developed test.

The New York Genome Center created MetroNome as a way to show genomic data in the context of phenotypes, but integration challenges lie ahead.

Silicon Valley VC firm DFJ led the investment in Verge, which is applying machine learning to the development of new drugs for Parkinson's and ALS.
