The researchers also developed a mouse model of the mutation using CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering to examine its effects.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pennsylvania's Department of Health has awarded several million dollars in funding to research institutes and clinical science centers in the state that seek to translate genomics research for clinical use.

In their genetic study of a rare cardiovascular condition called abdominal aortic aneurysm, a team of Montreal researchers found that SNPs in a gene called BAK1 were different in aortic tissue than in matched blood samples.

The deal will give cash-strapped Decode immediate access to an undisclosed sum in upfront payments, while Celera will gain access to gene markers that will expand its cardiovascular disease-focused genetic testing service.

Celera plans to use the SNPs to develop personalized risk tests for heart attack, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
