Investigators reported that methylation profiling could distinguish brain cancer subtypes and could detect kidney cancer with striking sensitivity in early experiments.

In Nucleic Acids Research this week: a web platform that combines large molecular and clinical datasets, a web resource for standardized single-cell RNA sequencing data, and more.

Researchers identified variants in the germline that appear to influence DNA methylation levels in prostate cancer tumors or in precancerous tissues.

Researchers used exome capture RNA sequencing to come up with a collection of circRNAs in dozens of cancer types, including proposed prostate cancer markers.

The money is being provided under three Genome Canada funding competitions in partnership with the Canadian federal government and other groups.

Investigators published an initial report on the method, which they call cfMeDIP-Seq, last week, and are now hoping to move to analysis of samples from longitudinal health studies.

The approach, called cfMeDIP-seq, could distinguish early-stage pancreatic cancer from healthy controls and differentiate several types of cancer.

Epic Sciences will donate its No Cell Left Behind platform to the clinical trial, which will enroll about 1,000 patients over three years.

Expression and copy number profiles from histologically normal duct tissue near tumors suggest a "field of cancerization" may exist in epithelial cells around cancer.

Using genomic data from large cancer cell line collections, investigators identified versions of spliced genes that spell better or worse drug response.
