SAN DIEGO (GenomeWeb) – Ancient human samples and additional genetic analyses are giving researchers a deep look into the structure of human populations.

SAN DIEGO (GenomeWeb) – While genomics has showed promise at a small scale for matching patients to treatments, scaling that capability up so that personalized medicine may be realized for all will require a lot more data to be sifted through, speakers at this year's American Society of Human Gen

The American Society of Human Genetics and the National Human Genome Research Institute have named Katherine Blizinsky the newest ASHG/NHGRI Genetics and Public Policy Fellow and Elizabeth Tuck as Genetics and Education Fellow. Both have 16-month appointments.

Gonçalo Abecasis and Mark Daly have been named recipients of the Curt Stern award from the American Society of Human Genetics.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The American Society of Human Genetics and The Jackson Laboratory have launched a collaboration to create educational programs focused on helping integrate rapidly advancing genetics and genomics innovations into healthcare practice.

BOSTON (GenomeWeb Daily News) – While panelists at a session at the American Society of Human Genetics annual meeting on Saturday said that the public is cautiously interested in including whole-exome or whole-genome sequencing as part of newborn screening efforts, there are concerns regarding pr

BOSTON (GenomeWeb News) – A panel at the American Society of Human Genetics annual meeting today discussed whether researchers have an obligation to return results, particularly so-called incidental findings, from genetic studies to research participants.

SAN FRANCISCO (GenomeWeb News) – By delving into the genetic relationship between the Tyrolean Iceman and present-day European populations, researchers from the US, Italy, and Germany believe they have new clues about an ancient population that brought agriculture to Europe.

This article has been updated from a previous version to note that the Center for Integrated Genomics is located in Foster City, Calif.

SAN FRANCISCO (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers based in the Netherlands and elsewhere are relying on whole-exome sequencing in an isolated population in that country to help track down rare variants associated with complex diseases.
