The collaborators are developing tests for rectal cancer based on microRNA and messenger RNA signatures.

The consortium aims to profile up to 800 multiple myeloma patient samples using the Affymetrix platform with a goal of developing a list of predictive biomarkers.

The European Commission may exempt researchers from a copyright law to enable data mining, according to Nature News.

Interviews with leading UK scientists revealed apprehension about losing access to European funding, limitations on freedom of movement, and an exodus of biotechs to the EU.

The European Commission recently awarded the researchers €1.5 million to probe the mechanics of heart failure using proteomic, genomic, and epidemiological approaches.

Questions remain about how the €6.7 billion ($7.6 billion) pledged for the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud over the next four years will be spent.

Researchers plan to develop a device that supports nucleic acid sequencing and protein sequencing using plasmonic nanostructures.

Called the European Open Science Cloud, the initiative is designed to support the storage, sharing, and use of scientific and technological research data.

As part of the effort, Virus.X also aims to craft new sequencing approaches, bioinformatics tools, and targeted gene products.
