NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A three-gene signature can distinguish indolent from aggressive prostate cancers, researchers led by Cory Abate-Shen, a professor of urological oncology at Columbia University Medical Center, reported

Though recent studies have established chromosomal microarrays as a higher-yield tool for detecting constitutional abnormalities, geneticists continue to work to link copy number variations with specific phenotypes.

After developing its strategy with a handful of initial patients, researchers at Columbia University Medical Center are planning to raise money to expand a program using whole-genome, deep exome, and RNA sequencing to build models of regulatory networks driving an individual pati

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium has finished enrolling two studies investigating genetic markers linked to drug-induced liver injury and hypersensitivity reactions, and it has launched a new study focused on finding markers of treatment-related inf

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – By combining systems biology and cell biology approaches, Columbia University researchers identified a molecular pathway that connects an APOE gene variant to the development of late

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A large international team has uncovered unexpected genetic diversity in the miniscule marine algae Emiliania huxleyi, a species now known to have the type of variable 'pan genome' previously described in some bacterial species.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Qiagen today announced two exclusive licensing deals aimed at developing companion diagnostic tests for glioblastoma, lymphoma, and other cancers.

Columbia University's Laboratory of Personalized Genomic Medicine has launched a whole-exome sequencing test for inherited genetic disorders, likely the first such test with conditional approval from the New York State Department of Health.
