In PLOS this week: somatic mutation associations unearthed in thousands of cancer exomes, pathogen detection assay, and more.

Each stage is associated with an increase in gut microbial diversity and is influenced by breastfeeding, researchers reported this week.

The centers will generate genomic data from biosamples contributed by participants in the program and analyze data that will be returned to them.

Using Cancer Genome Atlas data, the researchers identified about 1,100 genes in a range of cancer types whose expression is disrupted by structural variants.

Using exome sequences from individuals with developmental delays, heart defects, and limb abnormalities, investigators identified four TRAF7 mutations.

The approach generates a gRNA against a common genetic element called the flippase recognition target, making genome editing faster and scarless in E. coli.

Baylor College of Medicine's Olga Dudchenko sad the approach could assemble de novo mammalian genomes for less than $1,000.

Researchers detected excess genetic risk and/or misclassification when profiling ClinVar variants in ACMG-59 and OrphaNet genes using genome and exome sequences.
