Three studies encompassing dozens of ancient genomes are offering a closer look at complex historical population spread in North, Central, and South America.

A preliminary analysis based on high-resolution metabolomics pointed to three blood plasma metabolites with apparent ties to active, pulmonary tuberculosis.

The Tsimshian people of coastal British Columbia and southern Alaska experienced changes in genetic diversity following contact with Europeans.

Data from almost 19,500 individuals did not show clear ties between a heterozygous mutation in the HBB hemoglobin beta gene and ischemic stroke risk.

Speakers at HudsonAlpha's Genomic Medicine Conference said while sequencing results sometimes result in a diagnosis and change in care, they often have no consequence.
