The team found that a snoRNA biomarker called SNORA42 is linked to heightened risk of colorectal cancer recurrence and shorter survival. 

Discussing the Option

The Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research Consortium Pediatrics Working Group presents an ethics-based framework for discussing genome sequencing with pediatric patients and their parents.

The scientists believe they have created a more accurate way to detect mutations that often lead to hereditary colorectal cancer.

Baylor researchers turned to exome sequencing to uncover novel peripheral neuropathy-linked mutations and an increased burden of rare variants in patients.

The so-called HgV platform offers tools for analyzing high-throughput whole genome sequence data for precision medicine research and clinical applications

Taking advantage of a natural experiment, researchers found that methylation levels at the tumor suppressor VTRNA2-1 gene in infants vary with mothers' diet at conception.

The partners will focus on early treatment and diagnosis of cancers in women's health and abdominal and blood cancers.

The partners will sequence genes known to affect drug metabolism and response to create electronic medical record alerts and find clinically relevant gene variants.

At the Biology of Genomes meeting, BCM-HGSC head Richard Gibbs presented findings from pediatric and adult cases tested by clinical exome sequencing.

Baylor's clinical exome enhances coverage of over 3,600 genes and the lab has also validated Illumina's HiSeq X Ten for its research pipeline.
