Nanyang Technological University Pilot GenomeAsia 100K Project Highlights Insights Gleaned From Diverse Dataset The project has sequenced more than 1,700 individuals from across Asia to high coverage in order to bolster the representation of Asians in genomic research. Tropical Air Microbiome Analysis Reveals Daily Cycle, Environmental Drivers Researchers uncovered consistent day-to-night changes in microbial abundance based on metagenomic sequences for almost 800 air samples collected at a tropical site in Singapore. Archaic Introgression Patterns Point to Three Denisovan Lineages Using genome sequences for 161 present-day Papuans and Island Southeast Asians, researchers described three Denisovan lineages and estimated divergence times between them. Malaria Drug Resistance Genetic Features Profiled in Southeast Asia Researchers used genomic and transcriptomic data of isolates from seven Southeast Asian countries to find resistance-relevant pathways and expression quantitative trait loci. Acoustics-Based Method for Isolating Exosomes Could Accelerate Liquid Biopsies Premium A research collaboration involving several universities has yielded a technique that they said isolates exosomes from biological samples more effectively than incumbent methods.
