Through a genome-wide association study, University College London researchers have linked certain SNPs to hair shape, graying, and unibrow, among other traits.

The goal is to detect both clonal and subclonal variations and to demonstrate how Natera's technology can help improve cancer patient care and treatment outcomes.

Faster sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from sputum samples and analysis of resistance genes could enable better disease treatment, the researchers said.

A study comparing DNA extracted from standardized blocks of FFPE showed variability among experienced molecular pathology labs.
