With the assay, the Stanford researchers have begun examining protein phosphorylation levels in a variety of cancer types. The team has also entered into collaborations with several pharmaceutical firms to investigate the effects of therapeutic agents on protein phosphorylation levels in tumor cells.

Researchers from Stanford University and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital used a gene expression-based proteomics method to find protein biomarkers associated with acute organ transplant rejection.

Grants awarded to GE Global Research and Stanford University may help address many of the inherent technical difficulties of isolating, amplifying, and sequencing genetic material from microorganisms that colonize various parts of the human body.

"Most of the benefit of this program has already been had," said a UC Berkeley genetics professor after the California Department of Public Health limited the scope of the university's educational genetic testing project because it determined it was providing medical information.

Researchers involved in the CanMap Project genotyped nearly 1,000 wild and domestic dogs and explored how genetic variation corresponds to physical features in the animals.

"We have provided answers to an array of specific questions posed by committee staff who are working on AB 70," Mark Schlissel, UC Berkeley's dean of biological sciences, told Pharmacogenomics Reporter this week. "Personally, I do not believe that the State Legislature should be considering bills that would dictate aspects of the curriculum at its university system."

Snyder directs the new Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine at Stanford, which aims to integrate genomic information with medicine. Large-scale genome sequencing will play an important role in the effort.

A Stanford University research team reported today that they have uncovered apparent connections between histone methylation, reproduction, and life span in C. elegans worms.


The Los Angeles Times reports that experts say Moderna's investigational COVID-19 vaccine results seem to be a step in the right direction, but that more testing is needed.

The Washington Post reports a new coronavirus data reporting protocol goes around the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Trump Administration has reversed its policy that could have stripped international students of their visas, the New York Times says.
