Two research groups reported on statistical methods for uncovering methylated cytosine and/or adenine bases using electrical current cues from Oxford Nanopore sequencers.

In two studies, researchers sequenced nearly 500 tumors to uncover hallmarks of aggressive prostate cancer.

An analysis of copy number changes and genomic rearrangements in more than 100 tumors suggests chromothripsis may contribute to pancreatic cancer evolution.

The Ontario Institute for Cancer Research will work with prostate cancer data while Dana Farber Cancer Institute's pilot has yet to be decided.

The partners will work on pilot projects that use novel analytical approaches to explore oncology molecular and imaging data.

Researchers in Canada and the UK have used data from the Oxford Nanopore MinIon alone to assemble a bacterial genome into a single contig.

The International Cancer Genome Consortium has selected Annai Systems to host data from more than 10,000 human cancer genomes.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Ontario Institute for Cancer Research has joined the Open Cloud Consortium (OCC), a non-profit that provides cloud infrastructure to support science communities, and the partners plan to create a cancer genomics resource.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A research team led by scientists at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research have received a C$5 million (US$4.7 million) grant from the Movember Foundation to develop diagnostic molecular markers that physicians could use to make treatment decisions for their prostate ca
