Exome sequencing had lower sensitivity and specificity for finding inborn errors of metabolism than conventional screening, but appeared to refine mass spec-based results.

The group will use Akoya's Phenoptics platform to discover biomarkers for selecting neoadjuvant and adjuvant immunotherapies for early-stage breast cancer patients.

While a subset of metastatic castration-resistant tumors was marked by enhanced methylation, the analysis also pointed to recurrently hypomethylated regions.

UCSF's test, developed with Mammoth Biosciences, uses CRISPR technology, while the tests from the Broad Institute and BioSewoom are PCR-based.
