Many labs have yet to make the switch from the GRCh37 reference genome to GRCh38, and new data and another new genome assembly suggests the decision may be complex.
Illumina Makes Massive Variant Donation to ClinVar
The company submitted more than 95,000 recently re-curated variants identified in more than 1,500 genomes sequenced in Illumina's Clinical Services Laboratory.
Discovered and characterized through a collaboration between Feng Zhang's lab and the NCBI, C2c2 opens up the RNA world to editing and other applications.
Participants in the three-day hackathon, to be held early next year, will develop tools for analyzing NGS data in the context of specific research questions.
New Study Finds Three More CRISPR Proteins With Genome Editing Potential
A study in Molecular Cell shows CRISPR-Cas9-like genome editing in human cells and suggests one protein could be an RNA-guided, RNA-cleaving endonuclease.
