The researchers used whole-genome and single-cell sequencing to study cell migration patterns and clonal diversity, using new single-cell genotyping software.

Researchers diagnosed almost 70 percent of the neurometabolic cases they tackled, using exome sequence data for dozens of affected children and their families.

Two separate studies concluded that in most SEO cancer cases what they are seeing are two separate early-stage tumors, instead of late-stage cancer.

The team will employ reverse vaccinology coupled with high-throughput genomics approaches, such as RNA-seq, to deliver the new vaccines within four years.

Four bacterial genera are found at lower levels in the gut microbiomes of three-month-old infants believed to be at risk of developing asthma later in life.

An international team detected a variant associated with anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity in a study of more than 450 children treated with the drug.

With the American pika as an example, researchers show that next-generation sequencing approaches may be applied to elusive and endangered species.

Thirteen institutions and life sciences companies have teamed up to launch the free repository that will offer access to allele frequency information from genomes and exomes.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A new project spearheaded by Genome British Columbia and the BC Pharmacy Association (BCPhA) aims to assess whether pharmacists can drive adoption of genetic testing among doctors and help provide patients greater access to personalized medicine.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Personalized Medicine Initiative and molecular diagnostics firm Contextual Genomics have teamed to launch a project in Canada that will use genetic tumor profiling to choose patient's medications, the partners said today.
