Since the commercial launch of its technology last year, the firm has been validating it in studies with academic groups and pharmaceutical companies.

An integrated proteogenomic analysis led to previously unappreciated treatment targets or prognostic markers in craniopharyngioma, high-grade glioma, and other tumor types.

Adaptive is rebranding its immunoSeq Dx assay as T-Detect and plans to submit for an EUA for a COVID-19 T-Cell response test by the end of the year.

In PNAS this week: genomic analysis of ancient animals from Tibet, oncoproteins tied to WEE1 kinase enzyme inhibitor response, and more.

By combining genome sequence data with phylogenetics and other clues, two teams looked at the SARS-CoV-2 introductions that sparked outbreaks in North America and Europe.

In PNAS this week: genetic diversity of SARS-CoV-2 indicates neutral evolution, portable RT-LAMP method to detect SARS-CoV-2, and more.

Researchers have been using Nextstrain, which includes data for thousands of SARS-CoV-2 genomes, to study how the virus accrues mutations over time.

The researchers applied their approach to study the heterogeneity of immune cells and adapted a visualization tool to analyze the data.

Still Following It
