Drug companies are rushing toward genomic databases to inform their searches for new drugs, Reuters reports.

Using chromosomal microarrays, a Columbia University Medical Center-led team identified large genomic imbalances in pediatric chronic kidney disease, linking them to other disorders.

With genotyping and retroelement insertion mapping, researchers identified a clonal form of leukemia that's transmitted horizontally between soft-shell clams.

Thirteen institutions and life sciences companies have teamed up to launch the free repository that will offer access to allele frequency information from genomes and exomes.

Exome sequence data for nearly 9,300 individuals pointed to new and known risk genes for sporadic ALS, including genes contributing to innate immunity and autophagy.

The partners will build a new sequencing facility at Columbia to help uncover new drug targets for the drug-developer.
