News and reporting on lung cancer.

The SICILIAN algorithm, which uses statistical modeling to score candidate fusions in single-cell RNA sequencing data, is being used to map splice sites in individual tumor cells.

At the second virtual session of the AACR annual meeting, researchers also discussed how they're using CRISPR to develop better cancer models and reprogram T cells.

Christiana Care researchers have identified a unique protospacer adjacent motif site that allows them to knock out the NRF2 gene in tumor cells while leaving normal cells alone.

ArcherDX said the firms aim to apply minimal residual disease monitoring in clinical-trial protocols and for future therapy optimization.

The launch of the company's Prism system earlier this month should support the development of an accompanying menu of tests to serve diverse users.

The GWAS of more than 200,000 Japanese individuals across 42 diseases identified 25 novel loci shared between Japanese and European populations.

Microbiotica, Cambridge University, and Cancer Research UK will develop microbiome co-therapeutics and gut bacteria signatures for predicting immunotherapy response.

ArcherDx has leveraged next-generation sequencing to develop and commercialize more than 325 research-use-only products and a pan-solid tumor diagnostic test.

In the near term, the firm will launch a laboratory-developed, late-stage lung cancer assay out of its lab in Palo Alto. 

A new microbiome analysis uncovered cancer type-specific bacterial community features, along with intracellular bacteria in tumor and associated immune cells.
