Ymir Genomics and OHSU will share in any value created by the biomarkers and will jointly publish and validate the biomarkers in a large-scale multi-center study.

Luminist Labs is developing diagnostic technology for liver disease, which DiscernDx will integrate into its precision medicine platform.

The partners will use Namocell's single-cell dispensing tool and Takara's Smart-seq technology to isolate and characterize HepaTx's hepatocyte-like cells. 

Although normal tissues with somatic mutations did not necessarily progress to cancer, researchers saw a jump in mutational burden in samples associated with cancer or cirrhosis.

The researchers molecularly characterized cells found in cirrhotic tissue that express genes involved in pro-fibrogenic pathways that could be targeted by drugs.

Researchers characterized new and known cell populations with single-cell transcriptome profiles for nearly 10,400 liver cells, using the data to see changes associated with liver cancer.

Researchers found diagnostically informative single-gene mutations in five of the 19 idiopathic liver diseases cases they assessed with exome sequencing.

The researchers said a microbiome-based test could expand the number of individuals who are screened for the disease.

DefiniGen said it plans to use ERS Genomics' technology to create disease models to support drug discovery for type 2 diabetes and other conditions.

DefiniGen said it plans to use the Broad's technology to create disease models to support the development of therapeutics for metabolic diseases.
