Launched last month as part of the EU's coronavirus action plan, the portal will collect and distribute SARS-CoV-2 sequencing and patient phenotype data.

The researchers identified rare germline loss-of-function variants across the ELP1 gene in 14 percent of pediatric patients in a medulloblastoma subgroup.

In Nature this week:  three-dimensional assay to visualize transposase-accessible chromatin, computational tool that uses variant information to map cells to clone of origin, and more.

In Nature this week: residual protein expression uncovered for a third of CRISPR targets, and more.

Researchers measured proteins produced by 193 deletions in 136 CRISPR-deleted genes and found residual protein expression in roughly one-third of these cases.

A pair of new fecal metagenomics studies pointed to gut microbial community shifts, related functional changes, and specific signatures for colorectal cancer.

The institute — part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory — said it will use the new funding to increase its computing, storage, and building capacity.

The Common Infrastructure for National Cohorts in Europe, Canada, and Africa (CINECA) project looks to harmonize ontologies and create an interoperability platform for global genomics research.

The uncultured candidate bacterial species increase the diversity of human gut bacterial lineages almost threefold and will benefit future research.

Two research groups have cultured and sequenced microbes in fecal samples from healthy volunteers, producing new reference genomes for hundreds of species.
