In Genome Biology this week: computational approach for analyzing noisy single-cell sequencing profiles, eQTLs of dilated cardiomyopathy, and more.

The international team says its findings may explain the evolutionary reasons for the maintenance of coronary artery disease in human populations.

Researchers applied a SNP heritability model called LDAK to genetic data for a range of human traits, uncovering relatively high levels of variance explained by SNPs.

The partners will evaluate new biomarkers that they both find, and will assess the possibility for a preterm birth prognostic panel.

The technology involves analyzing susceptibility SNPs in order to predict a patient's likelihood of developing colorectal cancer.

The agreement gives Ventana access to results from a collaboration and licensing agreement that Transgenomic made separately with the University of Melbourne.

A clear unmet clinical need coupled with the persuasive study data suggests that it shouldn't be long before this type of testing is made available clinically.

The deal covers four of Transgenomic's liquid biopsy cancer assays, which detect actionable mutations associated with sensitivity or resistance to therapy.

The single-cell genomics center at the Monash Health Translation Precinct near Melbourne will be the first of its kind in Australia.

The Doherty Centre for Applied Microbial Genomics will use genomics to identify and track outbreaks of infectious disease, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
