Looking at 927 patients undergoing coronary angiography, the researchers identified a four-protein panel that outperformed traditional clinical measures.

The company, still collecting utility data, anticipates that this more complex analysis will lead to better personalization of health and wellness strategies for its clients.

The centers are using the standardized pipeline to help streamline data sharing and data analysis to achieve their larger research goals.

Researchers identified and started analyzing thousands of non-repetitive, non-human reference genome sequences in individuals from Iceland.

The researchers believe that by monitoring mtDNA copy number in blood, they will be able to identify people at risk for developing CHD who could benefit from preventative efforts.

The DiscovEHR study, conducted by the Regeneron Genetics Center and the Geisinger Health System, uncovered many associations between genetic variants and clinical phenotypes.

An international team of researchers examined genetic and lifestyle factors linked to heart disease in some 55,600 people.

Using exome sequence and phenotyping data for individuals from longitudinal population studies, investigators began parsing pathogenic mutation effects in the genes.

"The idea is to open up a completely new market for bringing genetics into the lower-risk general population," Invitae CEO Randy Scott told GenomeWeb.
