The organizations in the consortium will identify, characterize, and catalog human biological molecules affected by physical activity in volunteer biosamples.

The researchers found that 80 percent of pediatric posterior fossa ependymomas have decreased levels of H3K27me3 histone modifications.

Results from a study using the database showed that patients with high expression of a certain gene signature had better outcomes with radiation therapy than without it.

The results showed overall high concordance between test results and whether patients received chemotherapy, with some relevant exceptions.

The update includes several key initiatives such as a liquid biopsy database, a DoD-led longitudinal study, and NCI cloud collaborations with Amazon and Microsoft.

Results from the Rheumatoid Arthritis Responder Dream Challenge did not support the use of common SNP data to improve treatment response prediction models.

Using genome sequence data from almost 65,000 individuals, researchers identified 39.2 million SNPs that can be applied to improved genotyping imputation.
