The partners have committed to analyzing coding mutations, driver non-coding mutations, and structural variations across tumor types for the project.

The centers will support the NCI's Genomic Data Analysis Network, which is tasked with creating tools and strategies to study large-scale genomics data.

Researchers develop a Qatari reference genome to boost precision medicine in Middle Eastern populations.

The test, EXaCT-1, may not only help doctors find treatments for patients who have run out of options but may also provide biomarkers of immunotherapy response.

Recent numbers from the PMKB website show that the repository currently contains 144 genes, 458 variant descriptions, and 286 clinical interpretations.

The researchers drew on data from ENCODE ChIP-seq, Broad Cmap, BioGrid, and Columbia University Medical Center EMRs at different stages.

Under the terms of the agreement, the partners will share de-identified genomic and clinical data as well as explore new opportunities for collaboration.

Independent research groups have sequenced the common bed bug, using the new genomes and other data to search for biological vulnerabilities in the blood-sucking pest.

Both tests analyze tumor and normal samples by next-generation sequencing to help doctors make therapy decisions for cancer patients.

A team of scientists has begun to unravel the mysterious mechanisms behind metastatic organotropism, which has been puzzling scientists for over a century.
