In Genome Research this week: computational method for detecting repeat expansions, approach to find mosaic structural changes, and more.

The grants include awards for projects using genetics to identify differences in how ASD affects boys versus girls, and how to improve treatments.

The HPOs will receive $13.8 million to enroll people interested in the All of Us program, gather participant health information, and help retain participants.

Winship's director of the cancer tissue and pathology shared resource said that some labs aren't leveraging molecular technologies due to reimbursement issues. 

The British molecular diagnostics company plans to make its array-based test for early-stage Alzheimer's disease available in the US by year end.

The model incorporates clinical, serological, and gene expression factors, and could be used to tailor treatment choices.

The study will involve assaying proteomic markers for dementias including Alzheimer's disease, and understanding genomic markers as part of the normal aging process.

Transcriptional response of pro-inflammatory and antiviral genes in the face of childhood trauma is linked to PTSD but can be mitigated.

The addition of certain kinds of information could help clinical labs determine whether variants of uncertain significance are pathogenic or benign.

The test, which EGL plans to launch clinically this summer, is designed to boost diagnostic yield by helping to resolve variants of unknown significance.
