neuroblastoma

Single-cell RNA sequencing on adrenal gland samples with or without neuroblastoma helped track down key malignant subtypes and tumor features, providing prognostic clues.

In PNAS this week: effect of premature termination codons in the DMD gene, knock-down of DUX4 in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and more.

A new paper outlines an upcoming effort to trace tumor development and trajectory in time and space using single-cell genetics and other genomic methods.

A sequencing study suggests circularized DNA may be a more common source of somatic rearrangements in neuroblastoma than previously appreciated.

Though some experts prefer the comprehensive nature of whole-genome sequencing, others find whole-exome sequencing or targeted exome panels to be more useful.

Combined DNA/RNA-seq efforts in various settings could lead to new ways of treating kids with drugs meant for adults or to the development of new therapies.

In Science this week: sequencing of neuroblastomas uncovers alterations linked to prognosis, and more.

DNA sequence data from 416 neuroblastoma cases led to informative alterations affecting genes from telomere maintenance, RAS, or TP53 pathways.

Researchers profiled cancer gene mutations, expression, protein patterns, and other features in 23 recurrent or metastatic cases of olfactory neuroblastoma.

The work offers a proof of concept for the notion that dynamic models of signaling could serve as more effective biomarkers than discrete molecular markers.
