The researchers believe their findings could be used to change how patients' risk for breast cancer, colon cancer, or heart disease is calculated.
With genome sequencing, investigators tracked down a sole stool donor carrying the same multi-drug resistant form of Escherichia coli found in two FMT recipients with bacteremia.
A study presented at ASHG Tuesday showed that newly identified schizophrenia risk genes appear to have some overlap with genes involved in autism spectrum disorder.
The Irvine, California-based firm said its "Revolution" system offer recovery rates of 70 to 90 percent across a wide range of liquid sample volumes.
