NYGC

Data from 43 genome-wide association studies have led researchers to individual variants and genetic factors that influence multiple phenotypes and conditions.

The partners plan to build a comprehensive repository that will contain genomic, exome, and phenotype data collected first from about 200 cancer patients. 

Dozens of government agencies, academic institutions, and a various public and private sector organizations have now committed to driving the initiative forward.

The Simons Foundation and the Carson Family Charitable Trust will match every dollar raised by the NYGC over the next three years up to $100 million.

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.
