Researchers saw both short- and long-term changes in metabolite profiles in blood plasma from individuals who'd undergone Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.

Still Reason to Test

Being born premature shouldn't mean infants with high blood sugar levels don't undergo genetic testing for neonatal diabetes, a study in Pediatrics says.

The core technology uses proximity-ligated amplification and the firm will build it into tests for type I diabetes as well as highly multiplexed assays.

In PLOS this week: cell-free DNA from tumors is shorter than DNA from healthy cells, type 2 diabetes-related loci, and more.

University of Wisconsin researchers uncover a mutation linked to Mauriac syndrome, which affects some children with type 1 diabetes.

In Nature this week: rare variants contribute little risk to type 2 diabetes, atlas of gene expression in developing primate brain, and more.

Genomic data for more than 125,000 individuals uncovered type 2 diabetes risk variants, many appearing at loci identified through common variant association studies.

The researchers plan to use the award to improve upon existing approaches to analysis of longitudinal proteomics data in the context of type I diabetes.

In the study, the partners will perform exome sequencing and whole-genome array genotyping on more than 9,000 individuals with diabetes or with diabetic relatives.

The investment, which will be paid out over the course of five years, comes in part from industry sources.
