NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Two new Nature Genetics studies suggest that mutations affecting a gene called SMIM1 are behind the rare "Vel" blood group — named for the lack of Vel antigen expression on red blood cells of those affected.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In The Lancet, UK researchers reported on a whole-genome sequencing-based study of multi-drug resistant Mycobacterium abscessus transmissi

Using a combination of immunomagnetic separation and multiple displacement amplification, or IMS-MDA, a team led by researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute has developed a method allowing sequencing of whole genomes from discarded molecular diagnostics samples, without

Eastern Biotech in Dubai is now offering BGI Health's non-invasive sequencing-based prenatal test for Down syndrome under the name Trigene.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Blueprint Medicines today announced a collaboration with Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center to identify new cancer targets.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Tapeworm infections may be vulnerable to some of the same compounds used in cancer chemotherapy — at least that's one of the predictions stemming from a new Nature study focused on genome sequences for four tapeworm species.

Caris Life Sciences has launched MI Profile, a next-generation sequencing-based tumor profiling assay. The assay matches potential therapies to patient-specific biomarker information.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The UK's Medical Research Council has funded a new international initiative seeking to develop a multi-partner platform that will harness genomics and other technologies to study chronic, non-communicable diseases that impact sub-Saharan African.
