The company published a letter on its website explaining that the genetic and other analyses involved in its services were too costly for customers to support.

Researchers associated with the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network will publish more than 25 papers this week to discuss findings from the initiative.

Researchers reported on results for more than 100 healthy individuals who were tracked with 'omics and clinical tests over nine months.

The company, still collecting utility data, anticipates that this more complex analysis will lead to better personalization of health and wellness strategies for its clients.

ISB President and Co-founder Lee Hood will join Providence as senior VP and chief science officer as the partners join forces on research.

The approach could allow for unbiased detection of protein modifications with greater sensitivity than is possible using conventional shotgun mass spec.

Using genome, exome, and other data, researchers provide evidence for a Fanconi anemia subtype characterized by de novo, dominant negative mutations in RAD51.

Developers of proposals selected for the NCI-funded Cancer Genomics Cloud pilots have kicked of various stages of platform testing ahead of the nine-month evaluation phase

The firm's approach builds on a pilot study for ISB's 100K Wellness Project, and study participants are invited to become customers.

Institute for Systems Biology head Leroy Hood presented vignettes from last year's pilot project, laying the groundwork for more widespread wellness-focused work.
