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.
