In Genome Biology this week: genomic sequencing of milkweed bug, benchmark comparison of single-cell RNA sequencing platforms, and more.

DNA sequence data from 416 neuroblastoma cases led to informative alterations affecting genes from telomere maintenance, RAS, or TP53 pathways.

The partners are working to implement the University of Cologne's QuickNGS software on Bluebee's cloud-based platform

A comprehensive genomic profiling of small cell lung cancer has found that nearly all tumors harbor inactivated TP53 and RB1 genes, along with other genetic mutations.

The test is already being used in the clinic, especially to detect the emergence of resistance in CLL patients following treatment.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Plasmodium vivax parasite species behind most human malaria cases in Asia and Latin America can be traced back to Africa, where some ape species are still frequently afflicted with the parasite, according to a Nature Communications

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – By folding genomic information about patients' lung cancer tumors in with other clinical data to inform treatment choice, patients generally exhibited improved survival, researchers from the

The Institute of Pathology at the University of Cologne in Germany is now offering a lung cancer panel to guide treatment and enroll patients into clinical trials. The center has also been testing Qiagen's newly launched cancer panels for clinical use.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A new Nature study suggests that levels of a microRNA called miR-802 rise in response to obesity, leading to the sorts of metabolic changes and insulin resistance features that foretell type 2 diabetes.

Two independent teams have sequenced small-cell lung cancer exomes and transcriptomes, identifying several potential therapeutic leads.
