Many surgeons reported treating women with variant of uncertain significance the same as women with pathogenic mutations, in spite of current guidelines.

The funding will, in part, support efforts to expand the project's catalog of functional elements and understand their roles in different contexts.

The researchers' findings could have wide-ranging implications for how the modeling tool should be used and how reliable the data from it is in biodiversity and evolution studies.

The deal adds another major academic medical center to Tempus' roster of clients in the Great Lakes region.

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.
