The team also potentially identified the cells of origin for the most common medulloblastoma subtype, which could help develop novel therapeutics. 

Researchers have found that mutations present in medulloblastoma tumors at relapse differ substantially from those present at diagnosis.

COLD SPRING HARBOR, NY (GenomeWeb News) – Through whole-exome sequencing of single cells from a medulloblastoma tumor, researchers were able to identify distinct cancer cell types within the tumor that otherwise may have been overlooked, work presented by Stanford University's Sofia Kyriazopoulou

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Three genomic studies published in Nature this week are expanding understanding of the mutations and structural variations that define the four subtypes of medulloblastoma, a childhood brain cancer.

The Hospital for Sick Children and the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Center are conducting a whole-genome sequencing study of 1,000 pediatric brain cancer tumors.

Using a combination of exome sequencing and microarray-based copy number analyses, researchers have identified mutations involved in a type of pediatric brain cancer called medulloblastoma.

Biomedical research projects are generating a ton of data that still needs to be analyzed, NPR reports.

Theranos is retiring some of its board members, including Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, Business Insider reports.

The heads of 29 scientific societies and some 2,300 researchers call on President-elect Donald Trump to rely on and support science in two separate letters.
