A study reported this week that measuring changes in the numbers of specific circulating tumor DNA mutations can rapidly identify breast cancer patients who will have better outcomes.

A UK researcher has streamlined how women at her hospital with ovarian cancer seek genetic testing.

The researchers reported that BRCA2 was the most commonly mutated germline DNA-repair gene in their cohort.

A new study suggests ctDNA in post-treatment blood samples may help predict relapse in early stage breast cancer patients treated with chemotherapy and surgery.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A consortium of research centers led by the Institute of Cancer Research, London will partner with Illumina to launch a new sequencing-based testing program to analyze genetic mutations in cancer patients, the Wellcome Trust said today.

Matt Hancock, the UK health secretary, is calling for the swift rollout of predictive genetic tests, the Guardian reports.

A WHO panel is calling for a global registry of human germline gene-editing projects, according to Stat News.

Vox writes that lab mishaps involving pathogens are quite common.
