The researchers found that genetically predicted increases in heart rate were associated with shortened lifespans.

Researchers identified some 1.9 million structural variants using whole-genome sequence data from 250 families profiled for the Genome of the Netherlands project.

Researchers demonstrated that Strand-seq directional single-cell sequencing can be used to assemble consensus chromosome haplotypes for an individual.

Researchers used single-cell sequencing to uncover karyotype heterogeneity within mouse and human cancers and predicted that it might be linked to outcomes.

An international team has sequenced the Zostera marina genome to uncover gene gains and losses that helped it in its return to the sea.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In a study appearing online yesterday in Nature Genetics, researchers sifted through thousands of genome-wide association study risk loci to find those influencing the expression of far-off genes.

Several European lab directors interviewed by BioArray News said the switch occurred over the past year as a result of falling array prices and because lab techs have become more confident in their ability to interpret results as they have gained more experience with the technology.
