Jackson Lab

A Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine team found that certain protein factors come together to form a central anchor, holding together loops of DNA.

The funding, which is being provided by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, will also be used to expand the lab's outreach efforts to underrepresented student groups.

The center expands the collaboration between the two organizations at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.

The center will act as the hub of a network of investigators working to develop precision models of disease to accelerate the translation of medical research.

The researchers used a method known as paired-end tag sequencing, or DNA-PET, to identify five recurrent gene fusions in Asian populations with gastric cancer.

The results, published online in Genome Research last month, suggest that whole-genome sequencing may be able to boost the diagnostic rate of clinical exome sequencing.

The BeHEARD competition will award more than $600,000 worth of technology products and services for rare disease research projects.
