Though it is unclear whether the virus became pathogenic before or after the jump from animals to humans, genomic features point to a natural source for the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Ongoing Scripps research into polygenic risk for coronary artery disease now offers remote genetic counseling as well as an Android app.

A new study in Science used allele-specific expression data to find candidate genes that may have contributed to mendelian muscle disease in patients.

Scripps Research Translational Institute has teamed with Nvidia to create a center of excellence for AI in genomics and wearable sensors.

The partnership will allow people to see their genetic risk with other health data that Seqster pulls from electronic health records and wearables.

The institute will use the funds to continue combining genomic and digital technologies with bioinformatics to advance medical research and clinical care.

The prospective analysis suggests that the approach could help clinicians identify patients at risk of a stroke who could benefit from anticoagulant treatment.

Scripps researchers estimate that there could have been as many as 30 different introductions of the Zika virus into Florida, Medscape Medical News says.

Researchers found evidence that mutations and age-related methylation signatures tend to persist in induced pluripotent stem cells from the elderly.

Investigators plan to expand the program nationwide, with the hope that it can help guide care for living family members and further understanding of causal diseases.
