Exome sequencing data for hundreds of testicular germ cell tumor patients led to the discovery of rare mutations affecting cilia-microtubule genes.
Exome and transcriptome sequences uncovered features that characterized testicular germ cell tumors by whether they did or did not respond to treatment.
Combining the new risk variants with those found in the past, researchers came up with a risk score that may eventually help find those most susceptible to the disease.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Two studies appearing in Nature Genetics this week have uncovered about a dozen new loci linked to testicular cancer risk.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A subset of non-inherited, early-onset testicular cancer cases involve rare, germline copy number alterations, according to a study appearing online today in the American Journal of Human Genetics.
The Wall Street Journal reports that National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins' response to contamination concerns at the agency might have delayed care.
The final revision of the Common Rule doesn't include the proposed change requiring consent for leftover biospecimens.
