A group of researchers from Israel and the US report that they have characterized chromosomal abnormalities in different colorectal cancer stages and identified alterations associated with poor outcomes.

Affymetrix, Genentech, and the Stanford Genome Technology Center researchers report this week that they have come up with a reliable, high-throughput approach for finding rare variants via resequencing.

Researchers at Affymetrix, Genentech, and Stanford University's Genome Technology Center have created a new array-based resequencing assay that they claim is scalable enough to compete with second-generation sequencing platforms.

An international research team has sequenced the 1.4 million base pair genome of a Wolbachia pipientis strain that infects Drosophila simulans and causes cytoplasmic incompatibility during the fly's mating process.

Using bioinformatics, Belgian researchers estimate that a flurry of plant genome duplications occurred during or shortly after a mass extinction event amid the transition from the Cretaceous to Tertiary period.
