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.

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.
