The actual match rate is significantly higher than the 10 percent rate the researchers anticipated they would see when the study began in 2017.

The year-old Princess Máxima Center, based in Utrecht, has turned to bioinformatics firm The Hyve to address integration and interoperability issues.

At the ACMG meeting, a Children's Hospital of Philadelphia researcher described finding relatively high rates of hereditary cancer variants in tumor sequence data.

The variant especially increases stroke risk among childhood cancer survivors who received an intermediate dose of radiation.

At the AACR meeting, Elaine Mardis detailed efforts at Nationwide Children's Hospital to sequence patients' DNA and RNA to help inform therapeutic decisions.

The effort, outlined in a Development Cell paper published online today, aims to complement the ongoing Human Cell Atlas initiative, but with a focus on pediatric health.

Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have found patterns in RNA sequencing data that have led to possible treatments for cancers with no actionable mutations.

Funds and Sharing

ScienceInsider reports that US President Donald Trump's call for more funding for childhood cancer research may focus on data sharing.

This embargo-free strategy represents "an entirely new way of doing research" into rare pediatric cancers, where time is of the essence.

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