Next-Generation Discovery Workflows

Investigators detected more than 100 risk loci for primary open-angle glaucoma, with mostly similar effects in people with European, Asian, or African ancestry.

Initial partners in the program include Thermo Fisher Scientific, GNS Healthcare, DNAnexus, Personal Genome Diagnostics, and the Wellcome Sanger Institute.

The grant, to support the work of the GenOMICC consortium, will help to identify genetic factors associated with response to the virus.

In the first 53,831 samples, the researchers detected more than 410 million variants. almost 80 percent of which had not been described before.

A new study lends credence to the idea that pre-existing anti-cancer immunity depends heavily on patients' genetic background, according to one of the researchers.
