Irvine, California-based Fluxergy is working with the MGB Center for COVID Innovation to evaluate the firm's research-use-only COVID-19 testing platform.

Researchers tracked down monogenic risk variants, carriers, disease culprits, and more for 50 individuals with cardiomyopathy and 50 unaffected participants.

The mCODE team recently released standards for inputting genomic and other data into patient records to boost patient record transferability and trial participation.

Since selling GeneInsight to Sunquest, Partners has refocused its genomic informatics innovation on an app-based platform that it plans on making open source.

Despite years of experience of returning genetic test results, clinicians and researchers are still faced with many questions, such as what to do about VUS and secondary findings.

The FDA, journals, and even payors are encouraging labs to deposit variant data in public databases, but collaboration is needed to resolve interpretation discrepancies.

Integrated healthcare systems are corralling their resources and capabilities in applying for a shot to enroll volunteers to the national project.

Vanderbilt University, the University of Colorado at Denver, Partners HealthCare, and the Montreal Heart Institute will use Illumina technology to analyze their biobank samples.

Sunquest now offers GeneInsight as part of its laboratory information management system solution and is working with Partners to develop new capabilities for the clinical genomics tool.

The lab has also switched its gene panels from the Illumina HiSeq to the MiSeq platform.
