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.
