The centers will support the NCI's Genomic Data Analysis Network, which is tasked with creating tools and strategies to study large-scale genomics data.

Princeton University researchers uncovered hundreds of candidate autism risk genes and validated them in a large sequencing study.


Researchers sequenced 120 finches from the Galápagos and Cocos Island to resolve bird phylogeny and explore the genetic basis of fast-evolving features.

While the job market for life science researchers may seem bleak, those with a background in genomics may fare better. And though many argue that major changes are needed, some small measures could help better align the talent pool with opportunities.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A genome sequencing study in Nature offered hints about genetic strategies organisms may use to maintain species diversity, even in the absence of sexual repr

GenePeeks, a startup planning to offer a preconception genetic risk testing service for sperm donations, raised $3 million from private investors and the equity firms Selway and Columbus Nova last month in a series A funding round.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Thermo Fisher Scientific today announced a technology alliance partnership with researches from Princeton University to accelerate research in triple quadrupole and high-resolution accurate mass liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry for life science applications.
