Researchers demonstrated that Strand-seq directional single-cell sequencing can be used to assemble consensus chromosome haplotypes for an individual.

The researchers used whole-genome and single-cell sequencing to study cell migration patterns and clonal diversity, using new single-cell genotyping software.

Two separate studies concluded that in most SEO cancer cases what they are seeing are two separate early-stage tumors, instead of late-stage cancer.

The funding will support the British Columbia Cancer Agency's effort to use genome sequencing to develop personalized treatment strategies for cancer patients.

Among 100 adults and six children recruited between June 2012 and August 2014, most were successfully sequenced and a majority of those had actionable results.

The partners will use Watson's cognitive capabilities to reduce to minutes from weeks the translation of DNA information to create a genetic profile of a patient.

Researchers leading the POG trial are hoping this year to sequence the whole genomes of 300 cancer patients in an effort to find the best treatment options for them.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) ─ The British Columbia Cancer Agency has agreed to reimburse for Genomic Health's Oncotype DX breast cancer recurrence test.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In the early, online edition of Science, researchers from China, Denmark, and Saudi Arabia reported on recurrent mutations identified in individuals with

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In BMC Genomics, researchers from the University of Edinburgh and elsewhere introduced a high-density SNP genotyping array developed for the Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar.
