While short-read sequencing is still essential for studying RNA and gene expression, new methods are providing a sharper picture of transcript variants.

In PNAS this week: single-cell whole-genome amplification approach for SNV detection, immune features linked to bone regeneration, and more.

In Genome Biology this week: loci linked to longitudinal pediatric bone accrual, role of complement cascade gene in pancreatic cancer metastases, and more.

In Genome Research this week: approach to predict gene expression from single-cell DNA methylation profiles, oral microbiome of children with cavities, and more.

An integrated proteogenomic analysis led to previously unappreciated treatment targets or prognostic markers in craniopharyngioma, high-grade glioma, and other tumor types.

In a newly published paper, CHOP researchers described a method for rebuilding patient histories en masse to create gene-specific "footprints" in clinical records.

The tool, developed by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, was able to establish distinct mutational patterns in five major pediatric cancers.

A new paper outlines an upcoming effort to trace tumor development and trajectory in time and space using single-cell genetics and other genomic methods.

The three hospital laboratories' tests are all real-time PCR assays for detecting the virus from nasopharyngeal swabs and bronchoalveolar lavage.

Nearly 3,500 patients were referred to the Roberts Individualized Medical Genetics Center for exome sequencing or other testing during the clinical program's first four years.
