Sequencing Study Suggests Mutations Underlying Cerebral Cysts May Inform Severity, Treatment Options
Using parent-child exomes, researchers saw cerebral arachnoid cyst-related de novo variant enrichment in seven genes, offering clues to related symptoms and severity.
Image-seq deploys in vivo or in situ imaging to isolate cells from specific tissue locations for single-cell sequencing.
Computational Tool Tracks Genetic Variation Effects of Off-Target Gene Editing
Researchers came up with a strategy for predicting off-target edits related to genetic variation, using it to assess off-target variant effects on a potentially therapeutic guide RNA.
