Researchers characterized genetic, transcriptomic, and clinical features in advanced prostate cancers that emerged from treatment.

New genetic studies are providing insights into the molecular changes that occur as benign moles transition to melanoma and spread to other parts of the body by metastasis.

Researchers reported that natural killer cells produce a cytokine that recruits stimulatory dendritic cells to the tumor to boost patients' response to T-cell-based immunotherapies.

With panel sequencing data for more than 143,000 individuals, researchers characterized intragenic copy number variants in hundreds of monogenic disease genes.

Researchers treated a fetus with a severe genetic disorder while still in the womb, according to the New York Times.

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.
