The researchers said that long non-coding RNAs showed more specificity to different cancer types than protein-coding genes, making them important, precise biomarkers.

By scrutinizing more than 30,000 samples over dozens of studies, the team is exploring the genetics of transplantation complications.

The funding will be used to investigate the role of long, non-coding RNAs in both the normal development and stress responses of various plant species.

Researchers characterized mutation patterns in mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome using a combination of exome sequencing and targeted sequencing.

Bioethicists weigh the idea of charging patients to take part in clinical research, coming down against the approach.

With data for almost 31,500 women, researchers uncovered regions of BRCA1 and BRCA2 where mutations most closely correlated with breast or ovarian cancer diagnoses.

The technique, protein interaction profile sequencing, can capture both the pattern of protein-RNA binding sites and the larger structure of nuclear or other transcripts.

The NIH award funds a database that catalogs genomic information of clinically, economically, and scientifically important eukaryotic pathogens.

NEW YORK (Genomeweb) — A study comprehensively analyzing the genomes of more than 1,500 neuroblastoma cases has better determined the prognostic significance of ALK mutations and other alterations in neuroblastoma, and has biochemically investigated many of these variants to determine which ones

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The University of Pennsylvania's Basser Research Center for BRCA said it will award $6.9 million in research grants to its own investigators and those at other US institutions working on projects to advance cancer treatments for patients harboring BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations
