NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A search for low-frequency cancer driver genes suggests truncating mutations to a transcription factor gene called CUX1 may be the impetus for cancer formation in a small but significant subset of cases across several cancer types.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb news) − Pacific Biosciences said today that it is collaborating with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Public Health England to generate complete genome sequences for 3,000 bacterial strains from PHE's National Collection of Type Cultures, NCTC.

Children's Mercy Hospital has launched its Targeted Gene Sequencing and Custom Analysis, or TaGSCAN, test to diagnose pediatric genetic diseases.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – By considering sequence data for individuals assessed through the 1000 Genomes Project, a team led by researchers from Yale University and Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute came up with a computational method for prioritizing potential disease culprits — including those

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A study appearing online today in Science suggests that a strain of Salmonella involved in a global epidemic of multi-drug resistant infections passes back and forth between humans and animal sources quite rarely.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A pair of genome sequencing studies appearing online yesterday in Genome Biology is stirring enthusiasm about the prospect of getting at the genetic roots of drug resistance in Haemonchus contortus — commonly known as the barber pole worm — and coming

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A large international team led by investigators at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute has published a new study outlining a mutational catalog reflecting the processes at play in dozens of the most common cancer culprits.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Studies by two independent research teams published online yesterday in Nature Neuroscience suggest a single gene — the enzyme-coding gene called TOP3B — contributes to processes related to schizophrenia and to a syndrome associated with autism spectrum disord
