In a small study, melanoma patients with BRAF V600K mutations responded better to immunotherapy while those with V600E mutations had a better response to targeted therapy.

A circulating tumor DNA analysis identified somatic mutations in more than 64 percent of advanced non-small cell lung cancer cases, including some drug targets.

To Control the Spread

An Australian-led team has generated a draft genome assembly of the invasive cane toad in hopes it will help in population control, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The firm’s two-step multiplexed-tandem PCR tool identifies low concentrations of multiple STI pathogens in samples with high concentrations of other pathogens in three hours.

In Nature this week: the koala genome, genomic analysis of fern species, and more.

An Australian-led team uncovered genes that could help koala detoxify eucalyptus leaves and milk genes that help its young develop.

Metagenomics can help researchers and clinicians uncover sources of infectious disease and discern whether pathogens are resistant to antimicrobials.
