The funding will, in part, support efforts to expand the project's catalog of functional elements and understand their roles in different contexts.

Researchers found that telomeres were shorter in tumors than in normal tissues and longer in sarcomas and gliomas than in other cancers.

The single-cell approach enabled them to identify gene expression in rare cell types, highlighting a previously unrecognized role for these cells in diabetes. 

The lab plans to hire as many as 600 new employees in Wenzhou, China to conduct medical genomics research. 

The panel will be offered out of JAX Genomic Medicine's CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited lab and will support Jackson's Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative.

Jax researchers will aim to study why some individuals are more likely to start using drugs, or to get addicted to them.

The project is part of an ongoing effort to phenotype a genome-wide collection of mouse knockouts generated by the International Knockout Mouse Consortium.

The funding will support further data curation and integration, an expanded database infrastructure, and enhanced data displays and query tools, among other things.

Among other findings, the study suggests a protein's abundance is significantly regulated by the levels of other proteins with which it forms complexes.

A recent paper describes sample infrastructure for connecting tumor sequence to drugs and trials for use by labs offering oncology NGS-based panels.


A small, early-stage trial of a combination therapy for brain cancer reports favorable responses in two patients, according to the Guardian.

Nature News writes that viral genomic surveillance in the US faces systemic issues.

President Joe Biden is seeking an increase in federal spending, including higher budgets for the National Institutes of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
