Doctors and patients are still trying to figure out what role at-home genetic testing should play in healthcare, Newsweek says.

A separate UCSF group has already begun implementing a different version of the metagenomic sequencing assay in the clinic.

Investigators from several centers outlined tumor features, treatment strategies, and clinical trial classifications coming from tumor-germline clinical sequencing programs.

Conducting studies on Latina and African-American women produces population-specific insights on the genetics of the disease that aren't possible to glean in European-heavy GWAS.
