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.
Vivek Murthy is no longer the surgeon general of the US, the Associated Press reports.
People around the globe took to the streets to support science — some with signs.
Parents who learn of their increased genetic risk of disease also contend with telling their children about theirs, the New York Times writes.
In PLOS this week: loci linked to body mass index measurements, long non-coding RNA expression and urothelial carcinoma prognosis, and more.
