Physicians can now use the Dako PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx assay to identify urothelial carcinoma patients who may benefit from the anti-PD1 immunotherapy.

Researchers identified a mutational signature that's more common in urothelial tumors with non-silent somatic mutations in the nucleotide excision repair gene ERCC2.

Researchers did small RNA sequencing on matched tumor and normal samples from 10 men with penile squamous cell carcinoma.

Cancer Genetics said recently that it expects to launch at least two more array-based tests in its blood cancer and urogenital cancer franchises this year: a clinical assay for mantle cell lymphoma, and another, undisclosed test in the urogenital cancer space.

Though many details have yet to be worked out, the draft deal for the UK's withdrawal from the EU is giving researchers some hints for what they can expect, Nature News says.

DNA testing has solved a 100-year-old mystery contained in the skull and teeth samples of a now-extinct monkey that once inhabited Jamaica, Gizmodo reports.

As the UN ponders a ban on gene drives, one malaria researcher says there are less dramatic ways to fight the disease in Africa than unleashing GM mosquitoes on a whole continent.
