The firm presented initial study results from the test, which identifies six cancers, showing overall sensitivity at 86 percent and specificity of 95 percent.

The company's approach combines whole-genome sequencing, CRISPR, liquid biopsy, and gene therapy to target cancer cells with gene fusions.

Genomic and epigenomic data suggest it may be possible to target an FGFR fusion found in open chromatin in a subset of adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas tumors.

The funding is being provided under the NYGC's Polyethnic-1000 initiative, which was launched in 2018 to study cancer care inequities in underserved populations.

The company believes the pandemic will accelerate the adoption of its cancer diagnostics as patients and doctors look for faster and more convenient tests.

The collaboration seeks to develop RNA-based signatures that could help oncologists predict disease progression and guide the use of precision therapies.

The bioinformatics vendor is customizing a multiomics health data platform to help pancreatic cancer researchers pursue new therapeutic targets.

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