The latest research news in genetics and genomics.

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.

The firm's whole-genome amplification chemistry may help researchers better understand cancer heterogeneity, even between cells.

Following its departure from the European Union, the UK is to implement a fast-track visa program aimed at attracting scientific talent to Britain, according to BBC News.

ScienceInsider reports that researchers in Brazil are concerned that a creationist was chosen to run the agency that oversees graduate study programs there.

The Washington Post reports that researchers are quickly analyzing the coronavirus that has been causing illness and sharing their findings.
