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.

Researchers' picks range from emerging tools like deep learning to fundamental issues like false discovery rates and infrastructure for mass spec data sharing.

Data privacy has been an issue in genomics for some time, but new regulations and improved technology could force proteomics to confront it, as well.

The project represents the UK portion of a broader initiative to sequence the genomes of all 1.5 million known animals, plants, protozoa, and fungi.

Using 350 human genomes from different populations, the two centers plan to develop a multi-genome reference sequence that is as complete as possible.

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

In Genome Biology this week: post-transcriptional modification-based stratification of glioblastoma, single-cell analysis of gene expression and methylation in human iPSCs, and more.

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

Speed Search

Researchers from the University of Oxford have devised an approach to quickly search viral and bacterial genomes, according to the Atlantic.

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