As part of a course this fall, 20 undergraduate and graduate students used the MinIon in two hands-on "hackathon" sequencing projects.
New York Genome Center-led researchers have found that short tandem repeats may regulate gene expression rather than representing neutral variation.
Illumina's BaseSpace cloud will host 5,000 genomes of individuals with autism and their families from the National Institute of Mental Health's genetics repository.
The center has already sequenced and analyzed 1,500 human genomes for the TOPMed program and will expand this effort with the new funding.
The site, introduced at the American Society of Human Genetics meeting last week, supports genotyping data generated by 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and FamilyTreeDNA.
The repository will provide phenotypic, proteomic, metabolomic, genomic datasets, treatment protocols, and more from, potentially, 10,000 autism patients and families.
The New York Genome Center will sequence genomes of patients who died of ALS and who have donated tissue samples to Target ALS.
The Journal of the American Medical Association catches up with Harold Varmus on the next stage of his career.
The NYGC is currently preparing to submit a number of additional clinical tests to the state including assays for cancer and constitutional disorders.
Varmus plans to establish a "modestly sized" research laboratory at the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill-Cornell Medical College and to assist the New York Genome Center.
A new report offers ways for small, society publishers to transition to Plan S standards, ScienceInsider says.
A gas explosion sparked a fire at a Russian laboratory that stores dangerous pathogens, the Guardian reports.
Researchers turn to protein analysis to examine an ancient rhino sample, Smithsonian.com reports.
In PNAS this week: C2CD4A gene involved in insulin secretion, chromosome rearrangements in recurring S. aureus infections, and more.
