An international team of researchers also suggested that MUC16 mutations could identify patients who might benefit from immunotherapy treatment.

Wake Forest researchers are in the midst of an ongoing precision oncology trial to see how NGS-based tumor profiling and liquid biopsy assays can be implemented.

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

The researchers said the technique could be used to identify biomarkers specific to cancer or bacterial infection that are too small to detect by other methods. 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Wake Forest University and spin-out company NanoMedica have received $860,000 in funding to move a bead-based genetic sequencing drug discovery technology closer to commercialization, Wake Forest said today.
