A genome-wide association study that included two European cohorts pointed to a potential role for the SIGLEC15 gene in recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis susceptibility.

In PLOS this week: genes that help Borrelia burgdorferi survive in ticks, CiliaCarta collection of about 1,000 suspected cilia genes, and more.

Using genotyping profiles for nearly 256,000 individuals, researchers uncovered more than 100 new loci involved in nearsightedness.

The partners have agreed to codevelop targeted sequencing kits based on single-molecule molecular inversion probes.

Funded with €15.4 million from the EU's Horizon 2020 program, the researchers plan to reanalyze almost 20,000 patient exomes and conduct additional tests on selected subgroups.

The partners are planning to conduct meta-analyses of shared exome datasets from patients with inherited neurological disorders.

A research duo estimates in PLOS One the number of papers that have used misidentified cell lines.

One group pointed out differences between study group characteristics, while the other wondered about the role of patient preference.

Researchers identified some 1.9 million structural variants using whole-genome sequence data from 250 families profiled for the Genome of the Netherlands project.

A team from Radboud University in the Netherlands performed a new detailed and transparent cost analysis for sequencing based on both static costs, and factors that may differ from institution to institution.
