Genetics & Genomics Research & Discovery

The latest research news in genetics and genomics.

The team identified 64 statistically significant gene-based associations with phenotypes, illustrating the value of large, deeply phenotyped cohorts.

The study, led by researchers from precision health firm Human Longevity, also uncovered phenotypic evidence supporting some pathogenic genetic findings.

Nine of the genes analyzed had limited or disputed evidence linking them to long QT syndrome, suggesting they should not be included in genetic testing panels.

The new center will bring together pathology, computer science, cancer genomics, and immunogenomics to study which cancer patients can benefit from immunotherapy.

The panels will select candidate genes that will have a high impact on clinical practice in areas of high priority for participating institutes and centers.

Since the publication of the “The Digital MIQE Guidelines: Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Digital PCR Experiments” (dMIQE) in 2013, there has been a large expansion of the applications of dPCR such as single nucleotide variations (SNVs) and copy number variations (CNVs) measurements associated with disease diagnostics.
