The researchers particularly highlighted C21orf2 and NEK1, which are involved in cilial and mitochondrial function.

While unsolicited germline findings in cancer patients were rare, they made the researchers reevaluate their pre-test counseling, informed consent, and reporting process.

Using whole-exome sequencing early in the diagnostic process could save $3,500 on average in patients who obtain a diagnosis from it and $1,700 in patients who do not.

The University Medical Center Utrecht researchers' epigenomic analysis of primate brains uncovered human-specific cis gene-regulatory changes.

Researchers from the University Medical Center Utrecht reported that complex chromosome rearrangements in healthy mothers could lead to gene-dosage changes in their children.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A group of Dutch-led research partners will use a €1.2 million ($1.5 million) grant awarded under a collaboration with Stand Up 2 Cancer (SU2C) to fund a genomics-based project seeking to use tumor profiles to predict patient response to cancer treatments.

Cytogeneticists are increasingly adopting chromosomal microarrays for prenatal diagnostics, but have not yet reached a consensus when it comes to what kinds of cases should undergo array-based screening and which platform is best to use.

China's BGI has partnered with Utrecht University and the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands to conduct genomics research, the institutions said this week.

The scientists, who published their results in Nature Methods this month, determined that the bias is "largely independent of the sequencing platform" but is instead "strongly determined" by the method used for preparing the small RNA library.

Harold Varmus, a former NIH director, says that proposed reductions to the agency's budget are worrisome.

The Genome 10K project is to sequence about 10,000 vertebrate genomes, including ones of endangered species, Digital Trends reports.

The new Coalition to Save NIH Funding aims to educate lawmakers and the public on the significance of biomedical research.

In PLOS this week: analysis of viral sequences from human blood samples, gut microbiomes of heart failure patients, and more.
