Using MRSA isolates from England, researchers uncovered hospital-specific, community-specific, and overlapping transmission clusters.
Such an atlas could enable investigators to understand how genetic variants impact disease risk, define drug toxicities, improve therapies, and advance regenerative medicine.
Investigators saw muted negative selection against mutations in genomic data for more than 7,600 tumors, while mining positive selection patterns for cancer driver clues.
Several studies describe a new Neanderthal genome, Neanderthal sequence effects on human traits, and ancient hunter-gatherer population social structure clues.
Data from hundreds of individuals suggest that the country's populations are genetically diverse, with a long history of genetic isolation and differentiation.
With sequence data for hundreds of advanced breast cancer samples, investigators identified genetic alterations shared with — and distinct from — those in primary tumors.
Investigators sequenced 3,700-year-old Canaanite genomes and compared them to present-day populations to explore the historical people's origin and fate.
Scientists from The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Public Health England, and elsewhere sequenced the genomes of 209 MRSA isolates collected in Europe from 1960 to 1989.
The institute will house the Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance to monitor antibiotic-resistant bacteria worldwide.
Examining more than half of its genome, researchers found the parasite's success is due to stripping its genome down to essential genes.
An initial analysis suggests the novel coronavirus from Wuhan that is sickening people might come from snakes, a team of virologists writes at the Conversation.
