The lead investigators said that Foundation Medicine's NGS test will enable the beginning of targeted treatment within seven days of diagnosis. 

HudsonAlpha researchers are expected to sequence 20,000 patient tumor and non-tumor samples for ORIEN's Avatar initiative by 2019.

Ohio State's Steve Rissing writes that gene drives may be helpful, but also may be harmful.

With the funding, OSU researchers will conduct cardiovascular phenotyping and exome sequencing of DCM patients of European, African, and Hispanic ancestry.

The database currently includes 60 oncogenes with variants associated with therapies and clinical trials, or that have been functionally characterized.

The trial combines clinical NGS panels with research-based exome and transcriptome sequencing.

The paper describes a method of identifying genetic markers for reconstructing the phylogeny of the Penstemon genus from low coverage WGS data.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Antarctic midge genome appears to have jettisoned a slew of sequences from its genome during adaptation to its extreme environment, but has managed to avoid dramatic reductions in its protein-coding gene set, according to a new Nature Communications

Using a genomic strategy, researchers led by Ohio State University's David Carbone have identified a rare genetic mutation that they believe might characterize a small sub-group of lung cancer patients who could be super-responders to the cancer drug Nexavar (sorafenib).


In Nucleic Acids Research this week: ProTraits includes genetic, phenotypic data on bacteria, archaea; Candida albicans assembly 22; and more.

The Wall Street Journal reports that researchers are looking beyond Cas9 for CRISPR editing.

Familial DNA searches in criminal cases are winning over some critics, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Genomics may help the Cavendish banana from succumbing to fungal infections, a trio of researchers writes at the Conversation.
