Researchers used CRISPR to reintroduce an archaic variant of NOVA1 into cortical organoids to study how a human-specific variant may have affected evolution.

Investigators identified five expression subtypes spanning three broader clusters in postmortem parahippocampal gyrus samples from Alzheimer's patients.

The bioinformatics and sequencing firm, formerly known as WuXi NextCode, will develop a population clinicogenomic database to support Emory's research.

The firms said they are collaborating to facilitate genetic testing to support early diagnosis of GM1, a rare monogenic recessive lysosomal storage disease.

British bioinformatics firm PrecisionLife has mined the UK Biobank to identify genetic risk factors for late-stage COVID-19 patients developing sepsis.

Quanterix said that the acquisition will secure the supply of neurofilament light antibodies that are critical to its Simoa assays and services.

The funding is being provided to a number of early-career investigators and collaborative research groups using genomics and other technologies.

Silicon Valley VC firm DFJ led the investment in Verge, which is applying machine learning to the development of new drugs for Parkinson's and ALS.

An analysis revealed an uptick in cancer in frontotemporal lobar degeneration-affected families with tau mutations, pointing to a broader tau protein role.

Using large-scale GWAS data, researchers saw shared genetic contributors for ALS and frontotemporal dementia, as well as ALS and progressive supranuclear palsy.
