The integration on the Microsoft Azure cloud is helping Kaiser make its vast genomics dataset available to a wider pool of researchers.

The team saw risky mutations in colorectal cancer, polyp, and Lynch syndrome-related genes in almost 4 percent of CRC patients diagnosed at 72 years old, on average.

Researchers also combined the 121 SNPs they found with pharmacy data to develop a risk score to predict when patients would start lipid-lowering treatments.

At the Precision Medicine World Conference this week, researchers discussed how they plan to return genomic results to participants of research-focused sequencing studies.

Genome Medical will use the proceeds of its Series A-1 financing to expand its nationwide footprint, as well as to invest in its telegenomics platform.

Based on genotyping data for tens of thousands of individuals across ancestry groups, investigators identified 47 new and known intraocular pressure-associated loci.

The consortium aims to advance the use of genomics in the clinic, with a particular  focus on diverse and underserved patient populations.

A new study from researchers at UCSF and Kaiser Permanente has uncovered a set of genes that appear to regulate natural variations in prostate-specific antigen.

The healthcare provider plans to build a large biobank to conduct precision medicine research based on genomics, lifestyle, and environmental factors. 

The Kaiser Permanente Northwest researchers focused on patient preferences, their ability to handle unexpected results, and the time required for genetic counseling.
