In Nature this week: study of human-Neanderthal interbreeding, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder risk loci reported, and more.

A human-Neanderthal admixture event likely occurred before East Asian and European lineages diverged, while later events involved only East Asian or European lineages.

The study identified four variants in BAG3 that almost only occurred in African Americans and were associated with a nearly twofold increase in cardiac events.

In PNAS this week: alternative splicing patterns in sunflowers, EGFR inhibitor resistance in lung adenocarcinoma, and more.

In PNAS this week: effector proteins contributing to Legionnaires' disease virulence, proteomic analysis of transition to quiescence, and more.

The study will use NantHealth's GPS Cancer test to help treat adult and pediatric brain cancer patients.

Two recent studies confirm that CRISPR/Cas9 can edit and inhibit latent HIV provirus, but one of them hints that the virus can develop resistance to excision.

Researchers saw higher-than-anticipated genetic diversity when they sequenced a handful of Plasmodium vivax isolates from a malaria endemic region in Colombia.

The cancer genetic non-profit has opened a new facility located at Temple University.

In the first phase of the three-part pilot program, three projects will be chosen from 10 institutions in the Philadelphia region, Delaware, and New Jersey to receive one-year grants worth as much as $200,000 for proof-of-concept studies.
