testicular cancer

By analyzing more than 100 testicular germ cell tumors, investigators characterized mutation, methylation, and other patterns in four histological subtypes of the disease.

Two new studies have delivered a multitude of new markers linked to testicular cancer, as well as a better understanding of the genetic architecture of the disease.

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.

Institute of Cancer Research-led team described testicular cancer mutations that may drive the disease's development and hasten its transition to drug resistance.

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.

President Donald Trump might not approve the stricter standards the US Food and Drug Administration is developing for authorizing a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, according to Politico.

Wired reports that Oxitec has now developed a genetically modified fall armyworm.

A large genetic study finds SARS-CoV-2 viruses with a certain variant are spreading more than others, according to the Washington Post.
