Over the next year or so, the investigators plan to sequence the genomes of 3,000 patients with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or neurological disorders.

The screen homed in on a number of genes involved in cholesterol biosynthesis that, when lost, make cells more resistant to infection.

Researchers found complex "rigma," "pyrgo," and "tyfona" structural variant classes by applying their new algorithm to thousands of cancer genomes.

The New York Times reports the New York Genome Center has awarded six grants to researchers to study cancer in diverse populations.

The GTEx Consortium, which has been working for 10 years, analyzed how genetic variants affect gene regulation, and how this contributes to disease and traits.

The funding is being provided under the NYGC's Polyethnic-1000 initiative, which was launched in 2018 to study cancer care inequities in underserved populations.
